Tragically, a pickup truck driver was killed and his passenger was seriously injured yesterday in Plano when the truck they were riding in flipped multiple times. When the accident occurred, the truck was traveling at a high rate of speed on E. Plano Parkway. The driver hit the curb, causing the vehicle to overturn. The truck eventually came to rest in a field.

The driver was ejected from the truck. He was rushed to the hospital where he died a short time later. The passenger was taken to the hospital in serious condition, but is expected to live.

Pickup trucks are more likely to flip than other vehicles because of their higher center of gravity.
