Deadly Crash

DEADLY CRASH – A Bedford man died from injuries sustained in a crash Thursday on U.S. 81/287.

The driver of a tractor trailer died at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth Thursday from injuries sustained in an early morning two-vehicle accident on U.S. 81/287 just north of Farm Road 407.

Juan Jasso, 36, of Bedford died in the emergency room of the hospital after being flown there by medical helicopter.

Department of Public Safety Trooper Patrick Garcia said the tractor trailer hauling a tanker with diesel and a white Mercury Montego were northbound on U.S. 81/287.

“We’re not sure why [the truck driver] took evasive action,” Garcia said. “The 18-wheeler lost control, started into a side roll, struck the passenger car from the rear and then proceeded to roll into the median.”

The driver of the tractor trailer was flown to JPS where he died. The driver of the Mercury, Joe Frerichs, 21, of Bowie was taken to JPS by ambulance and suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Diesel leaked out of the tanker following the crash. Crews were brought in to clean up the leaked material. Another crew worked into the evening Thursday to remove soil from the median.

The accident occurred shortly before 5 a.m. and snarled traffic in both directions on U.S. 81/287 for several hours. Northbound traffic was diverted onto the service road at FM 407 for several miles.
