TYLER - A Tyler man was killed this morning when his truck slid into a flatbed trailer.
It happened on Highway 155, just north of Grande Boulevard.
Troopers say a Mack truck towing a trailer was trying to back into a business. The pickup driver couldn't tell the trailer was taking up both lanes, and he slammed into it.
Traffic was reduced to one lane in each direction for a couple hours.
69-year-old James Carns died at the scene. No one else was injured.
