Driver ejected, killed in rollover crash along wet Dallas expressway

The Dallas Fire-Rescue and Police Department responded to a major accident involving a vehicle rollover earlier this morning along southbound US-75 Central Expressway near Royal Lane.

Police say a driver was traveling at speeds not safe for a wet roadway when he collided with another vehicle. The speeding vehicle spun out and began to overturn. While the vehicle was rolling over, the driver was ejected through the sunroof.

The victim, who has not yet been identified, was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Heavy rain causes ponding on area highways, which could leave to hydroplaning. It also reduces visibility and impacts reaction time. Please slow down if you are driving in heavy rain events and keep your eyes on the road.
