At approximately 10:15 pm on Thursday, September 2, Grapevine Police responded to 9-1-1 calls about a car that had rear-ended a semi-trailer on Westbound I-635 at N SH-121 Southbound.
When officers arrived on scene, they found a 4-door sedan partially under the rear of the trailer. Firefighters arrived on scene and determined the driver was deceased.
The roadway was closed and traffic was diverted Northbound on SH-121 for approximately three hours while a crash team investigated the accident. There were no other passengers in the car, and the driver of the semi-trailer was not injured.
The exact cause of the accident remains under investigation.
The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office will release the driver’s name pending contact with next of kin.
It only takes five minutes behind the wheel to figure out that Dallas drivers maneuver by their own rules of the road.
Do you consider a red light or four-way stop just a suggestion?
If an adjacent lane is coming to an end, do you speed up, close the gap, hit the horn and nearly push the other motorist into construction cones?
