Police seek driver at fault for crash last weekend that left two dead
Police in Dallas said they are searching for the man who fled the scene of a crash early Sunday that resulted in the deaths of two people.
The wreck happened just before 5 a.m., as a vehicle with a 49-year-old man and 77-year-old woman inside was northbound on Webb Chapel. Investigators found that their vehicle entered the intersection of the 635 service road, when another driver ran a red light at Webb Chapel Rd. “at a high rate of speed.”
The vehicle that ran the red light crashed into the other vehicle, causing it to collide with a retaining wall.
The occupants were pronounced dead at the scene. The victims’ names have not been released and our hearts go out to the families they leave behind.
Police said the driver who ran the red light fled the scene, though a passenger in their vehicle was detained and treated for minor injuries at the hospital.
Police have not said if they know the name of the driver who fled. No additional details have been released as of yet.
