Small child killed in rollover accident along I35E in Dallas

The Dallas County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a fatality accident that occurred on Thanksgiving night in the northbound lanes of Interstate 35E near Northwest Highway.

Multiple emergency responders from the Dallas Fire Rescue and Dallas sheriffs deputies all responded to the scene around 9:48PM. One vehicle was located upright, but had obviously overturned multiple times.

Traffic investigators say two vehicles were traveling northbound on the highway, one tailgating the other. The driver of one vehicle said the other was right up on his taillights. It is unclear if the vehicles made contact, but the first vehicle swerved left for an unknown reason, causing it to overturn multiple times.

A 5-year-old boy was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced deceased by paramedics on the scene. A 21-year-old and 19-year-old were also evaluated for injuries sustained in the crash.

The Dallas County Sheriff’s Office Vehicle Crimes Unit is investigating this crash.
