Trucker Died When Big Rig Falls Off Upper Level of I-10

A trucker was killed today when his big rig skidded across the upper level of I-10 near Laredo south of downtown and fell onto the lower level of the highway.

Police say Jose Aguillon, 62, apparently lost control of his Peterbilt when he began to slid backwards on the elevated highway, then skidded across the roadway, clipped a car, and then hit the concrete retaining wall and dropped off the edge onto the highway below.

Aguillon was pronounced dead at the scene.
