Transport company asks for help finding video of crash that killed driver
COLLIN COUNTY – The haulage company that owns the 18-wheeler that toppled a concrete barrier on US-75 on Tuesday, killing the driver, is looking for dashcam footage of the crash that could have sent the semi-trailer on the road below.
The driver, Gusatvo Gomez, 71, had been an employee of Bancroft and Sons Transportation for more than 20 years.
In a statement released Thursday, JD Bancroft asked anyone with footage of the crash to send it to Allen’s company or police.
“The driver’s family said it may not bring him back, but it could bring some clarity and clarity to the accident investigation,” Bancroft said.
Bancroft called Gomez a loyal and dedicated employee who had a good driving record with the company.

Gomez’s tractor-trailer overturned the concrete guardrail on US-75 near Stacy Road at the Allen-Fairview border on Tuesday.
Allen police say the big rig collided with another vehicle as it traveled north on 75, causing the 18-wheeler to fly off the right side of the overpass.
Allen police say the driver of the other vehicle was not injured. They did not say whether charges should be filed.
