Two dead after truck jumps median on LBJ

Two are dead following a Tuesday morning accident caused by a dump truck jumping a median on the LBJ Freeway and pinning two vehicles underneath it. Traffic was snarled for hours after the fatal wreck.

The driver of one of the crushed cars miraculously escaped serious injury when the truck landed on his car. Sadly, two people in another vehicle were not so lucky. A Hazmat team cleaned up a substantial diesel fuel spill before traffic could once again use the lanes.
