Fort Worth separate car accidents result in death of two people

Two people lost their lives in separate vehicular accidents in the early morning hours of February 2 in Fort Worth, according to The Dallas Morning News.

Fort Worth police spokeswoman Tamera Pena reported that a single-vehicular crash occurred at around 2 a.m. in the 4700 block of West Loop 820 South near Camp Bowie Boulevard. 23-year-old Matthew Lutkins was killed when his car struck a sign pole, causing Lutkins to be ejected from the vehicle.

Approximately one hour later, police reported to the site of a truck accident on westbound Interstate 30 near Cooks Lane. An 18-wheeler and minivan collided, resulting in the death of 36-year-old Clifton Smith. Police said Smith died at the scene of the accident, while another person was transported to a local hospital. A third person was given emergency treatment on site. The driver of the 18-wheeler was not injured from the collision.
