A Denton man was killed after his vehicle collided with a cement truck in Carrollton on Thursday night, police officials said.

Jose Rolando Andrade Garcia was driving a Ford F-150 when his vehicle struck the back of a cement truck near Interstate 35E and Frankford Road, officials said.

Nicole Rodriguez, spokeswoman for Carrollton police, said dispatch received reports of the accident at 7:33 p.m. Thursday.

Troy Taylor, chief death investigator for Denton County, said Garcia suffered multiple traumatic injuries that resulted in his death.

All northbound lanes from West Frankford Road into Lewisville as well as the westbound ramp of the President George Bush Tollway were closed for several hours Thursday night while officers mapped out and investigated the crash site.

The cause of the accident remains under investigation, police said.
