4 dead in fiery wreck on Dallas overpass

DALLAS (AP) - Authorities say four people have died in a fiery wreck on a Dallas overpass after their vehicle became entangled with a tractor-trailer carrying lumber.

Dallas County Sheriff's Department spokesman Raul Reyna said they are still investigating what caused the wreck early Monday morning. He said two adults, including a pregnant woman, and two children died in the vehicle that became entangled with the tractor-trailer. He says the driver of the tractor-trailer was unharmed.

Reyna says that when the vehicles became entangled, the gas tanks on the tractor-trailer ruptured, causing the large fire. Burning lumber fell from the overpass onto the ground below.

The accident happened on the bridge from westbound Interstate 20 to southbound Interstate 35.
