Dallas, TX – 3 Injured in Head-On Collision on NW Hwy
Dallas, TX (July 14, 2019) On the morning of July 14th, a head-on collision happened on Northwest Highway for unspecified reasons. Two vehicles collided head-on on the highway early in the morning before the sun came up.
When firefighters, paramedics, and the police department arrived at the scene, they found the driver who was traveling in the wrong direction with major injuries. There were two occupants in the other vehicle that also sustained injuries. All three injured victims were rushed to a nearby hospital for immediate treatment.
Tow trucks arrived at the scene to remove both of the damaged vehicles as they both appeared totaled.
The authorities are still investigating to determine what caused one of the vehicles to end up in the wrong lane.
We wish all three victims a fast recovery.
Head-On Collisions in Texas
Most head-on collisions occur in rural parts of Texas, but there are times where head-on collisions occur in urban areas. Drivers end up in the wrong lanes when they are inebriated, fatigued, or distracted. Head-on collisions often occur over the weekend in the middle of the night when drivers are leaving bars, clubs, and/or parties. It takes about two hours for alcohol to settle into the bloodstream, which is why drivers are often intoxicated by the time they get on the road to head home.
