One woman was killed Friday when her motorcycle flipped after colliding with a car on I-35W near Alliance Airport.

The northbound lanes of I-35W were closed following the wreck, according to a tweet from the Texas Department of Transportation.

The driver of the motorcycle was pronounced dead at the scene, MedStar spokesman Matt Zavadsky said.

It was initially unclear how many other cars were involved in the collision.

A photo from the scene published to the traffic app Waze showed an 18-wheeler stopped along the highway and a white sports utility vehicle that had come to a stop, facing perpendicular to the regular flow of traffic.

The user who posted the photo said that all northbound traffic was being forced to exit the highway at the time.

The Mercedes-Benz financial services building can be seen in the background of the photo.
