Two drivers killed in wrong-way collision on the Dallas North Tollway

The Texas Department of Public Safety is investigating a fatality accident that occurred early Saturday morning on the Dallas North Tollway just north of downtown Dallas.

At 4:35am, DPS Troopers and Dallas Fire Rescue responded to a two-vehicle accident on southbound Dallas North Tollway near Wycliff Avenue.

Officials say a 27-year-old Richardson man was driving northbound in the southbound lanes of the tollway when he hit a pickup truck head-on. The driver of the pickup truck, a 55-year-old Houston man, was pronounced deceased at the scene along with the wrong-way driver.

Southbound lanes of the Dallas North Tollway were closed for most of the morning while DPS investigated the scene. All lanes have since been reopened.

The crash remains under investigation.
