Grapevine Police are investigating a deadly three-vehicle crash involving a wrong-way driver.

Just after 4:00 a.m. on Sunday, January 7, 2018, a motorist traveling southbound in the northbound lanes hit another vehicle head-on in the 2200 block of N. SH-121.

The driver, 38-year-old Stephen Herrera of Fort Worth,traveling northbound, died. The wrong-way driver was transported to Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Grapevine. A third victim suffered a minor injury.

Investigators believe alcohol was a contributing factor in the crash, so a warrant was obtained for a blood sample of the wrong-way driver. 37-year-old Derrick Lockhart is now in jail facing charges of Intoxication Manslaughter With a Vehicle and Intoxication Assault With a Vehicle.

Grapevine Police shut down all Northbound lanes of SH-121 at Bass Pro Drive to investigate the crash scene, but anticipated that the road would re-open around 10:00 a.m.
