Southbound Interstate-35 now open after fatal early morning crash

 

 

An early morning crash killed one person and snarled traffic on southbound Interstate 35 Wednesday in San Marcos.

According to police, a tractor-trailer struck road debris that disabled the trailer’s air brakes, causing the vehicle to stop in the right southbound lane of I-35 on the McCarty Lane overpass at around 2 a.m.

All in all, the city survived the surprise storm in good shape. San Marcos Police Sergeant Jehu Derrickson said while there were several weather-related traffic accidents, no serious injuries were reported.
