A tractor-trailer driver died after a collision forced his truck to tumble off a highway overpass in Texas before bursting into flames, according to police and reports.

The big rig appeared to be traveling northbound on US-75 when it collided with another vehicle just before 3 p.m. on Tuesday, according to the Allen Police Department.

The crash forced the truck to fly off the right side of the overpass and crash into the service road below, killing the driver, police said. 

Dashcam video footage obtained by WFAA shows the moment the 18-wheeler careens off the overpass, flipping 180 degrees on its back before catching fire.

The truck driver was later identified as Gustavo Gomez, 71, WFAA reported. The other driver was not injured, police said.

USPS later confirmed that Gomez was a contractor delivering mail for the postal service.

The crash, which occurred about 30 miles north of downtown Dallas, caused major delays in the area as clean-up Presenterss and investigators worked at the scene, according to Allen officials.
