Stranded vehicle to blame for multi-car pileup on Dallas North Tollway
At around 8:30pm on Saturday evening, multiple emergency responders from the Dallas Fire Rescue responded to the northbound lanes of the Dallas North Tollway near Northhaven Road for a multi-vehicle crash.
Authorities say traffic had slowed in the area due to a stranded vehicle in the roadway. A vehicle failed to slow down and caused a crash that involved at least five vehicles. One of the vehicles caught fire and another overturned.
All northbound lanes of the Tollway were diverted off the highway until around 2:30am while DPS troopers investigated and cleared up the scene.
One driver was transported to a local hospital with injuries.
