An 18-wheeler hauling concrete drove off a bridge near Elmdale Road, coming to rest on 1-20 east of Abilene.

Suffering from an unknown medical condition, the driver lost control of the vehicle and headed off the bridge, sailing through the air, before going down the embankment and coming to rest on 1-20. Traffic was diverted onto the access road while the accident was cleaned up. The driver was taken to an Abilene hospital.
