Press Release For Immediate Release

On December 13, 2016 at approximately 6:13 PM, emergency personnel responded to a motor vehicle crash in the 8000 block Boulevard 26. The initial investigation indicates a 2016 Chevy Cruz was traveling eastbound Birchwood Drive attempting to cross Boulevard 26. As the vehicle crossed into the northbound lanes of traffic, it was struck by a Ford F150. The Chevy Cruz came to rest on the east side of the roadway and became engulfed in flames. The impact caused the Ford F150 to continue travelling into the southbound lanes of traffic, striking a black Lexus 4 door that was stopped due to heavy traffic.
Two occupants of the Chevy Cruz were able to escape from the vehicle and were transported by ground ambulance to an area hospital. A third occupant sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the Ford F150 (male, 31 years of age, of Colleyville) and the Lexus (male, 26 years of age, of Fort Worth) were uninjured.
The cause of the crash is still under investigation and the name of the deceased is being withheld until family has been notified.
