18-wheeler sideswiped several vehicles in Northwest Dallas

Posted: Updated:

A tractor trailer tore through a Northwest Dallas neighborhood Monday morning smashing vehicles in its path.

Witnesses said the truck sideswiped vehicles that were parked in the 3100 block of Wildflower Drive. They said it sounded like thunder as the big rig plowed through the neighborhood full of cars and trucks.

One witness estimates the driver was going 50 to 60 miles per hour for it to cause that much damage and so much noise.    

"He came around and knocked out the pole, then hit the van, hit the Expedition, took out a Ford Ranger, then every about four cars on this side," said witness Jesse Perez.

Some witnesses were able to chase after the truck and get its license plate number. The driver ditched the trailer but came back with the cab. He was arrested.
