Below is the original text from this story:

Texas DPS Troopers say one person is dead after a GMC SUV hydroplaned and crashed into a concrete barrier early Wednesday morning.  The crash took place on northbound Interstate 35 near County Line Road in West around 5:40am.

Troopers say after the SUV slammed into the barrier, it became disabled in the inside lane and a Freightliner semi hit it from behind.

The impact caused the SUV’s driver to be ejected. The person died on the scene. The driver of the semi was not injured and does not face any charges at this time.

DPS asks that everyone remember that slowing down during wet weather can reduce the chances of hydroplaning.
