One killed in Dallas seven-vehicle crash

One person was killed while two others sustained various injuries in a seven-vehicle crash caused by the drunk driver of a stolen vehicle in Dallas, the Dallas Morning News reported on November 25.

It started when the Mesquite Police Department received a 911 call about a motorist driving an SUV who was suspected of drunken driving because of the way he was speeding along the LBJ Freeway. Once the police caught up with the vehicle, they determined that the Jeep Grand Cherokee was a stolen vehicle.

The SUV, with the police in pursuit, did not stop at a red light at LBJ and Ferguson Road, then ran another red light at Ferguson and Maylee Boulevard, which led to a fatal collision that involved four other vehicles.

The speeding Jeep driver was injured, but tragically, the passenger in another vehicle died after being brought to the hospital.
