Keller woman fatally crushed by cement truck on 183 in Dallas

DALLAS -- A Keller woman died Friday after a cement truck overturned onto the SUV she was driving.

Texas 183 was closed at Interstate 35E in Dallas after the wreck.

Lt. Vernon Hale, a Dallas police spokesman, said the wreck occurred at about 3 p.m. when a cement truck traveling south on Texas 183 swerved to avoid a vehicle. The truck hit the median wall and flipped into the northbound lanes.

The truck hit a motorcyclist and landed on the sport utility vehicle, killing the driver, who was identified as 41-year-old Maria Angelica Gamez by the Dallas County medical examiner's office. A 5-year-old child was also in the SUV, Hale said.

The child was taken to a Dallas hospital in critical condition, Hale said. The 34-year-old motorcyclist also was taken to a Dallas hospital in serious condition.
