There is one death and multiple injuries in an accident on I-35 in which a truck hit a support beam on the FM 2484 bridge overpass on the north side of Salado. Traffic in both directions is at a standstill and multiple first responders are on the scene from Bell and Williamson County.

A northbound truck carrying a lift hit either the abutment or the beams, but made it through the bridge. The beams collapsed onto  other trucks and vehicles.
