The police responded to a single car accident in Arlington along Interstate-20 at about 11:22 am. When they arrived, they found a 4-door car along the side of the road. The crash happened right where drivers leave Interstate-20 and approach State Highway 360.
This time of year, there tends to be a lot of rain, even in Texas. Even experienced drivers can run into problems when dealing with wet or slippery roads. This seemed to be the case in the accident.
An unidentified man was driving his vehicle along this route when he lost control of his car. The car left the right side of the roadway and ended up crashing into the concrete barrier wall. The driver suffered serious injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.
The Tarrant County Medical Examiner said he was still working on identifying the victim. Once that was done, he will have to notify the next of kin. They will not release the name of the victim until this has been done.
Authorities confirmed that there were no other occupants of the car. No other vehicles were involved in the crash, at least from what the police could see.
The road crew said that the roads were wet and this may be why the driver lost control of his vehicle. There were no witnesses so they can’t be sure what happened. The investigation is still going on. They did not indicate that alcohol or drugs played a role in the crash. At this time of that, that would be unusual.
The police have not confirmed that no other vehicle was involved – this is something that will be revealed in the investigation.
