1 Dead, 1 Hurt in Dallas, TX NTTA Truck Accident on North Tollway

Dallas, TX -- January 14, 2017, a person was killed, another critically injured, following an accident where a car collided with an NTTA truck on the DNT.

The Dallas Police Department and other emergency personnel were called to the scene of the crash, near Royal Lane, in the early morning hours of Saturday.

According to preliminary accident reports, a Chevrolet Malibu was traveling southbound on the Tollway in the outside lane. As it did so, there was a North Texas Tollway Authority truck stopped in the lane of traffic. Reports say it was parked behind emergency crews responding to an earlier accident, and the truck was equipped with a flashing arrow to direct traffic.

The Chevy somehow was unable to avoid the NTTA truck in time, and it crashed into the rear of the vehicle. As a result, the driver suffered fatal injuries and was killed in the crash. The passenger of the Chevy was ejected from the vehicle during the collision and suffered serious injuries. EMS transported that person to Parkland Memorial Hospital in critical condition.

Authorities have not indicated what factors may have contributed to the crash. They say the incident remains under investigation.
