The driver of the 2005 Freightliner that was killed Tuesday morning on Interstate 30 has been identified as is Bryan Horn, 65, of Irving, Texas.
The Texas Department of Public Safety identified Horn on Wednesday, according to officials.
At 2:30 a.m. Tuesday, Texas Department of Public Safety Troopers were notified of a multiple vehicle crash on I-30, just west of Spur 74 in Bowie County.
The preliminary investigation indicates that a 2011 Freightliner towing a trailer, driven by Marius Reitmajer, 55, of Niles, Illinois, was westbound on I-30 when it hit a cow that was on the highway. The rig traveled across into the eastbound lane where it was struck by a 2021 Chevrolet Malibu, driven by Kellie Beggs, 43, of DeKalb, according to a preliminary report from DPS.
The trailer of the Freightliner rolled over across the eastbound lane.
The 2005 Freightliner and trailer drove through the rolled-over trailer and caught fire.
A 2020 Volvo towing trailer, driven by Manuel Cruz,was also eastbound and swerved to the left to avoid the crash but struck the detached rear axle of the rolled-over trailer.
Horn died at the scene.
