One Person Killed Following a Four-Vehicle Crash Involving a Tanker Truck that Caught Fire on I-14 West

A tanker truck got into a major accident Monday morning on April 24, 2023, on I-14 West, in the area of Nolanville Hill.

Bell County Public Information Officials reported that following a collision between a Pontiac and another 18-wheeler, a pickup truck stopped to help and that’s when another vehicle collided with the pickup truck. Then an 18-wheeler carrying 8,500 gallons of fuel ran into the vehicles involved in the collision. The tanker truck burst into flames, firing smoke in the air that could be seen for miles. The driver of the tanker truck was reported dead.

Emergency Responders from Killeen, Ford Hood, Central Bell County Fire and Rescue, Belton and the Texas Department of Transportation all responded to the scene. The crash happened around 6 a.m. and the fire was extinguished by around 9:30 a.m.

The Texas Department of Transportation created a construction lane to repair the roads surface following the hot fire from the tanker truck.
