Kenneth Walter Killed After Rear-Ended by 18-Wheeler in Lewisville
On Thursday morning, 81-year-old Kenneth Olson Walter lost his life after an 18-wheeler rear-ended his vehicle along Interstate 35E in Lewisville. The collision occurred on near Business 121 on southbound I35E at around 1:45am on December 30, 2021.
According to NBCDFW, the impact of the collision caused Mr. Walter’s vehicle to be pushed several hundred feet down the road. It also is said to have ruptured the fuel tank which caused diesel fuel to spill across the highway. Reports indicate that Mr. Walter’s vehicle was stopped on the highway.
