One person dies after multi-vehicle crash in south Dallas Sunday evening
Yesterday evening just before 9pm, Dallas Sheriffs deputies along with Fire-Rescue personnel were dispatched to a major accident in the eastbound lanes of I20 at Kirnwood.
Upon arrival, sheriffs deputies located multiple vehicles, including two that were on the left side of the roadway.
The preliminary investigation reveals that two vehicles had collided and were stopped on the left side of the interstate. The crash scene obstructed the left lane of travel. Another vehicle traveling in the left-center lane changed lanes to pass a vehicle, and crashed into one of the vehicle involved in the first accident.
The driver of one of the vehicles involved in the first crash was sitting in his vehicle when his vehicle was struck by the third vehicle. He was not wearing a seatbelt, and was ejected into the roadway.
After the driver was ejected, he was overrun by a vehicle traveling on the interstate. He died at the scene.
Two other people were transported from this scene to Methodist Dallas hospital. A 30-year-old white male has been identified as the victim in this crash.
