Fatal accident backs up traffic on I-35 for hours

TEMPLE, TX (KXXV) -

A man is dead after he was hit by a car that lost control on I-35 in Temple early Friday morning.

Temple police responded to a report of a major crash on I-35 about 5:50 a.m. Friday morning. The investigation into the crash indicates that a red Jeep was traveling northbound on I-35, near mile marker 303A, and hit the right side guardrail.

Raymondo Carrasco Sr., 53, of Nolanville, was the driver of the Jeep. After Carrasco hit the guardrail, it is believed that he got out of his vehicle to check out the damage.

A short time later, a yellow Ford pickup lost control while approaching the accident scene of the Jeep. According to police, the pickup hit the cement center divider, or another vehicle, then slid across I-35 and collided with the guardrail and then hit Carrasco.

Carrasco was thrown from I-35, approximately 50 feet down an embankment, to the service road. He received severe injuries in the impact and was pronounced dead at the scene by Justice of the Peace David Barfield.

The driver of the pickup was transported to Scott and White Hospital with non life-threatening injuries.  

I-35 was closed from 6 a.m. until 10:40 a.m. Friday morning. The Temple Police Department's Traffic Collision Reconstruction Team is investigating the crash.
