Woman killed in crash on Northwest Highway in University Park

On September 16 at around 3:00am, University Park Police were dispatched to a one vehicle accident in the 3600 block of Northwest Parkway near Thackery Street.

When UPPD officers arrived on scene, DPD officers and a Dallas Fire Rescue crew were already providing emergency care to the driver, who was the only occupant of the vehicle.

Police say the vehicle struck a tree in the median area between Northwest Highway and Northwest Parkway. “Although the vehicle was apparently driving at a fairly high rate of speed at the time of the accident, there were no skid marks.”

Dallas Fire Rescue transported the driver to a local hospital, but she was pronounced deceased. She has been identified as a 34-year-old.

The crash remains under investigation.
