Three people were transported to a hospital after an alleged intoxicated driver struck their SUV. The crash occurred on the eastbound side of Woodall Rodgers Freeway service road close to the Akard Street intersection. A news report revealed the 24-year-old male driver of a truck ran a red light and struck the SUV carrying three people inside.
The three passengers were taken to Baylor Medical Center in Dallas where one of them, a 25-year-old woman, was left in critical condition. A second, 15-year-old passenger was in stable condition while a third, a 48-year-old, had no injuries.
The 24-year-old was also transported to the hospital but refused treatment and was later arrested by police. According to authorities, he was also involved in a hit-and-run a few blocks away on the intersection of McKinney Avenue and Routh Street. The driver of the vehicle he sideswiped called 911 and alerted police who were then able to find the second crash. The suspect is now facing two intoxication assault charges.
