UPDATE:

LINDALE (KYTX) - Lindale police are still investigating after a man died after walking in front of an 18-wheeler flat bed around 2:15 Friday afternoon on I-20.

Police aren't releasing details of the accident, but say they are now investigating the death as a suicide. They still don't know what circumstances led up to the man's death.

Law enforcement aren't releasing the victim's name as they continue to notify the next of kin. However, they say he is a white male from Smith County.


 

LINDALE (KYTX) -- A man was killed when he stepped out in front of a tractor trailer on Interstate 20 this afternoon. 

DPS Trooper Jean Dark tells CBS 19 the man died at the scene. His name has not been released pending notification of next family members. 

That accident caused a six car pile-up that hurt two people. They were taken to area hospitals. Their injures were not said to be serious. 

The two accidents backed up traffic on the interstate for about two and half miles while crews cleared the scene.
