At least three people died after a multi-vehicle crash on I-35W Friday afternoon. It happened at about 1:30 p.m. in the northbound lanes just south of UNT. 

A truck packed with propane tanks caught fire following the crash causing a massive explosion. Two semis and at least 4 cars were involved in the crash. 

The cause of the crash is still under investigation, but a police spokesperson says speed may be a factor. The northbound lanes of I-35W will stay closed into Saturday as crews work to clear the road.
