GAINESVILLE, Texas (KXII) - A highway collision left at least one person dead in Gainesville Friday afternoon.

Gainesville Highway Patrol say 35-year-old Adrian Gainus of Dallas was headed north on I-35 when he lost control and struck a curb.

Gainus slid down the embankment and into the concrete barrier before being hit by an RV, causing the motorhome to burst into flames. Gainus was pronounced dead at the scene.

The 3 p.m. wreck caused a ten-mile backup, leading to another wreck in which a person was thrown from their car.

Troopers have not released any other information at this time.
