Investigators said it appeared a dump truck driver struck another semi-truck before veering off the overpass.

CEDAR PARK, Texas — A fatal crash caused road closures in the Cedar Park area on Wednesday afternoon.

The Cedar Park Police Department said it received a call at around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday of a dump truck that went over the side of the 183A Toll at Brushy Creek Road. 

Upon arrival, officers and firefighters with the Cedar Park Fire Department found the dump truck on fire under the overpass. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. Their identity will be released pending an autopsy and notification of next of kin.
