Car rams tanker truck full of fuel

Posted: Updated:

Clean-up crews spent the morning transferring fuel from one tanker truck to another after an early-morning accident in West Dallas.

Shortly after 3 a.m., police say a man driving a black Nissan Sentra smashed into the rear of a Dupre tanker truck on Singleton Boulevard at Westmoreland Road.

Emergency crews had to use the jaws of life to rescue the car's driver from the crumpled vehicle.

The force of the impact pushed the tanker's rear axle forward, causing the truck to be undrivable. That driver was not injured in the crash.

At least one empty beer can was spotted on the car's floorboards, so police are investigating whether alcohol was a factor in the accident.
