A Dallas firefighter fell to his death off an icy overpass overnight.

William Tanksley was a 14-year veteran of the department and authorities say the 40-year-old was working at the scene of a crash on Interstate 20 when he fell to the pavement below.

It's not clear if he simply fell or if a driver hit him.

The firefighter leaves behind a wife and three children.
