FAIRVIEW, Texas - 71-year-old Gustavo Rodriguez Gomez was the driver of the 18-wheeler killed in a fiery crash at the Fairview-Allen border on Tuesday, according to the Collin County Medical Examiner.
Gomez's tractor-trailer flipped over the concrete guard rail on US-75 near Stacy Road.
Allen police say the big rig collided with another vehicle while heading north on 75, causing the 18-wheeler to fly off the right side of the overpass.
Gomez died on scene. No one else was injured.
The crash closed down 75 and the area around Stacy Road for a long time Tuesday while investigators gathered evidence.
Police say the driver of the other vehicle was not injured. Police have not said if charges are expected,
