1 hospitalized after Tuesday’s major crash on I-35E in Lewisville

One person was hospitalized with major injuries, and another person had minor injuries, Tuesday afternoon after a major crash on I-35E in Lewisville.

About 2:15 p.m., a yellow pickup was headed north on I-35E and lost control and spun out near the Business 121 flyover, striking the center retaining wall, according to a spokesman for the city of Lewisville. A tractor-trailer then struck the pickup.

A passenger in the pickup was taken to a Denton hospital with major injuries, though the extent of his injuries are not known, as of Wednesday morning. The pickup driver had minor injuries, and the tractor-trailer driver was not injured.

First responders closed the northbound lanes of I-35E to clean up a large fuel spill, diverting traffic to the Express lanes and frontage road, causing significant delays for afternoon commuters. The main lanes were reopened around 6 p.m. Tuesday.
