Two killed, one seriously injured in Dallas car accident

Two people were killed and a 9-year-old girl was seriously injured in a car accident that occurred last week near the Pleasant Grove area. According to police officials, the accident occurred when a driver ran through a red light at an intersection.

The driver was traveling westbound on Military Parkway when he ran through the light at Jim Miller Road. The driver was allegedly traveling home from his birthday party when he crashed into three vehicles that were at the same intersection.

Police investigating the incident stated that the driver seemed drunk and believe he attempted to flee the scene afterward. He was transported to the hospital in order to be treated for a broken wrist.

One vehicle that was struck was sent flying into a pole as a result of the collision. The two adults inside of this vehicle were pronounced dead at the scene. A young child was thrown from the car during the collision and she was transported to the Children’s Medical Center of Dallas in order to be treated for serious injuries.

The driver of another vehicle was also transported to the hospital, but is said to be in good condition.  Police officers have charged the driver of the first vehicle with intoxication assault and and two counts of intoxication manslaughter.
