Deadly Accident Amid Traffic Jam

4-5-06 - A hot spot for accidents killed a person on Tuesday at mile marker nine in Love County. The accident occurred around 11:50 p.m. when four vehicles were all traveling southbound on Interstate 35 in the outside lane.

Several vehicles were stalled in traffic due to an accident farther up the interstate when a troopers say Sean Evan Choate, 25, didn't slow down fast enough and slammed into a semi and then struck another vehicle. The car and semi burst into flames.

Choate, from Yukon, died at the scene. No one else was injured.
