A yellow Ford Thunderbird was traveling east on the South Loop when its driver suddenly noticed a white Nissan 300ZX stalled on the freeway. The driver of the Ford swerved to avoid hitting the Nissan, but instead struck the vehicle on its back left side. The Nissan then veered across two lanes and caught fire. The Ford veered across one lane of traffic in the opposite direction. Witnesses attempted to rescue the female driver of the Nissan from the vehicle, but were unsuccessful.
