Dallas, TX (April 14, 2019) On the morning of April 13th, a fatal vehicle crash happened on the Dallas North Tollway at approximately 2:20 a.m. According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, a Cadillac CTS was driving on the highway when it hit a Chevrolet Impala and a Nissan Altima near the Maple Avenue overpass.
When emergency crews reached the crash site, they found that a 23-year-old named Shelbi Stephens had suffered fatal injuries. The driver of the Cadillac along with four occupants from the Nissan were all taken to nearby hospitals due to serious injuries.
Authorities are currently investigating what caused the Cadillac to strike the other two vehicles. It took crews about five hours to open up the lanes again after clearing up the accident.
