Woman abruptly swerved across highway before fatal crash, Irving police say

The Irving Police Department is investigating a fatality accident that occurred along westbound Airport Freeway (Highway 183) near Belt Line Road Monday afternoon.

At around 3:00pm, Irving Fire/EMS and Police responded to the scene and located two vehicles with major damage.

Investigators say a driver was traveling in the far right lane when she abruptly swerved across all lanes of the highway, seemingly attempting to enter the express lanes at the last minute. In doing so, she collided with the yellow collapsing barrier. A second vehicle traveling in the fast lane then collided into her vehicle.

The driver of the first vehicle was transported to Parkland Hospital, but pronounced deceased. She has been identified as a 26-year-old from Dallas. The driver of the second vehicle was not injured.

The crash remains under investigation.
