Woman Killed, 1 Injured in Car Accident on I-20 in Arlington, TX
Arlington, TX -- January 8, 2023, one person was killed and one was injured due to an accident where two pickups crashed on I-20.
Initial details given by Arlington Police officials said the incident took place in the area of I-20 and Collins Street at around 2:00 a.m. They said that a 62-year-old woman was in a Ford F-150 traveling along the interstate when it crashed with a Dodge Ram 1500. This caused the Ford to then crash on the median.
Due to the collision, the woman sustained fatal injuries. A man from the Ford had reportedly serious injuries. Occupants of the Dodge were said to be not seriously hurt. Police mentioned witnesses seeing the Ford "weaving" at high speeds prior to the crash, but this cannot be confirmed at this time. Even with those claims, however, folks shouldn't go around jumping to conclusions.
Frankly, it would shock people to see all the reports police make mistakes on. It can be due to a single inexperienced officer, a department not giving its officers enough time or resources to do their jobs, or even something as simple as a misspeak or a typo. For all we know, there was some sort of emergency that would explain what witnesses saw leading up to the crash. It's why I learned a long time ago the importance of letting the evidence speak for itself.
