9 people lost in 3 days in 3 deadly crashes
Tuesday’s collision north of Fort Worth
In the first of the three deadly crashes, a high-speed wreck happened between two pickup trucks. They collided outside of Springtown on FM 51 (Main Street) two miles north of the intersection with State Highway 199. Tragically, there were no survivors.
It is not known at this time what caused this wreck. The police report has not been released yet. If this happened at an intersection, either the silver truck failed to yield the right of way or the other truck failed to slow down and it turned.
We see that young men driving oversized trucks and speeding, wrongfully passing or turning, and driving while looking down at their cell phones – or all of the above – often cause deadly crashes like this one.
