MORRIS CO. (KYTX) - A Dallas area man is dead after his 18-wheeler collided with another tractor-trailer on I-30 in Morris County Thursday.

DPS Trooper Sylvia Jennings says the 53-year-old driver, whose name has not been released was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigating Troopers report debris on the highway slowed traffic when both 18-wheelers steered off the roadway to avoid striking other vehicles.

The deceased victim's truck struck the rear of the other 18-wheeler. The trailer of that truck hit a pick-up. The occupants of the pick-up and the driver of the other tractor-trailer were treated for non-life treatening injuries.

The accident happened around 12 noon at Mile Marker 174 on Interstate 30 in Morris County.
