At around 8:50 p.m. authorities responded to a three-vehicle crash on northbound 1-35E near Interstate 30. A vehicle had broken down on the shoulder, where a second vehicle had pulled over to help, when a third vehicle veered onto the shoulder and rear-ended one of the stopped cars. The third vehicle, a sports car, killed the driver of the first stopped car. Authorities say the driver of the sports car and a passenger were taken to Parkland Memorial Hospital, both of which were minors. An additional passenger from the first car that stopped was also taken to the hospital.
Two sheriff’s deputies were driving on I-35E toward Parkland Hospital stopped to help a car after they noticed it stalled on the highway. While one of the deputies pushed he stalled vehicle with his squad car, the other deputy was blocking traffic in his car. Moments later, a sedan that had lost control struck the back of the squad car that was blocking traffic.

According to the Sheriff’s Department, two men were also ejected from the sedan and taken to Parkland Hospital in critical condition.
