Dallas, TX (May 14, 2019) – On Saturday, May 11, Dallas Police responded to the scene of a motor vehicle accident in the 10100 block of Scyene Road.
Just after 8 p.m., a male in a 2002 brown Mercury sedan was speeding along the roadway. The driver entered into the center of the lanes in an attempt to pass between two motor vehicles – a 2015 Dodge SUV and a 2008 white Toyota sedan.
While traveling in the middle of the lanes, the driver in the Mercury collided with the Toyota as it approached a red light on Scyene Road near Masters Drive. At the same time, the Mercury collided with the Dodge.
A six-year-old involved in this collision sustained injuries and was transported to an area hospital in serious condition.

Car Accidents In Texas
Countless children are injured in Texas car accidents each year. Unfortunately, a larger number of motor vehicle accidents are caused by drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
When children are injured in motor vehicle accidents, they are often forced to undergo extensive medical treatment. The fragile structure of a child’s body makes them more likely to sustain serious and life-threatening injuries in motor vehicle accidents. When children are injured, parents are often forced to take time off work to help them throughout their recovery. In some instances, victims can contact a car accident attorney in Texas to get the justice they deserve.
