Driver arrested for intoxication after two people killed in Fort Worth crash

The Fort Worth Police Department is investigating a fatality accident that occurred last night on southbound West Loop 820 near Chapin Road in west Fort Worth.

Just after 9:30pm, multiple emergency responders from Fort Worth FD, PD, and MedStar EMS were called to the scene after 9-1-1 callers reported a vehicle had overturned and caught fire.

Police quickly closed all southbound lanes of the highway while firefighters contained the blaze. When the fire was put out, the bodies of two people were discovered inside the overturned vehicle.

Traffic investigators say their vehicle was rear ended by another driver, who was found to be intoxicated at the time of the crash. The driver was transported to a hospital in police custody.
