FOREST HILL -- A deadly accident snarled rush hour traffic at a major Tarrant County interchange on Tuesday afternoon.

Images from HD Chopper 8 showed an upside-down pickup truck in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 20 where it merges with Loop 820.

Its 55-year-old driver was killed by the impact; no identity was released.

The pictures appear to show that the red truck had been traveling south on Loop 820 when it crashed through a guardrail, was propelled up and over the median and landed on its roof in the eastbound lanes.

No other vehicles were involved in the crash.

The wreck led to an estimated five-mile backup on eastbound I-20 as only one lane was getting through. Motorists were urged to seek alternate routes.
