A two-vehicle collision that happened at around 1:30 a.m. on Monday, December 7 in the westbound lane of Interstate 30 between Oakland Boulevard and Beach Street in east Fort Worth, Texas has resulted in the death of one woman and the serious injury of another.
According to preliminary investigations, the woman was thrown out of her vehicle after it was hit by a minivan along the roadway, police spokeswoman Corporal Tracey Night said.
Police officials noted that the accident happened while the victim’s vehicle was stopped along the freeway. Officers are still working to determine why the vehicle was stalled, and currently suspect that it was due to a previous accident.
The woman, who died at the scene of the accident, was identified as the one who was driving the vehicle. Another woman, who was a passenger in the vehicle, sustained critical injuries during the crash and was taken to John Peter Smith Hospital, MedStar Health spokesman Matt Zavadsky said.
