UPDATE: Woman dies in Friday night crash on 183 in Hurst

Last Friday night, Hurst police and fire departments responded to a major accident along westbound Airport Freeway (183) just before NE Loop 820 just after 10PM.

Officers arrive to find the sole occupant alive, but unconscious in the vehicle. The vehicle had reportedly struck a pole.

“Hurst medics immediately began treatment and transported the driver to a local hospital, where she was pronounced deceased a short time later,” says Hurst police.

Evidence at the scene indicates only one vehicle was involved in the crash. It is unclear at this time whether the driver’s death was brought on by the accident or underlying medical problems. The Medical Examiner’s Office is working to identify the cause of death.
