Troopers say the crash occurred in the westbound lanes as traffic was slowing, that’s when Narinder Singh, of Mansfield Texas failed to decelerate in his tractor-trailer  for the stopped vehicles and swerved crashing into another vehicle. Singh began to overturn as he struck the median barrier cable and then hit another vehicle. Lambeth was then hit by Singh  and the impact caused him to crash into the fifth vehicle involved in the collision.

Narinder Singh was arrested and may face charges of involuntary manslaughter in the 2nd degree.

3 vehicles were totaled in the crash.

Trooper Proctor and Curnes responded at 8:08. am.
