Last week it was reported that a trucker died when his semi fell off a Texas overpass. Now, dashcam footage has been released that shows the fiery accident.

The fatal accident occurred when the trucker’s big rig hit another vehicle, causing it to fall off the overpass and crash into the road below. The truck was heading northbound on U.S. Highway 75. Witnesses said the semi was on fire when it fell, and police said the driver was dead at the scene.
