A fatal crash on Interstate 20 involving at least four vehicles resulted in the death of one passenger on Wednesday.

On the afternoon of February 7, a collision occurred near Cedar Ridge Drive, east of Spur 408, according to a Dallas Sheriff’s Office post on X. At 1:23 p.m., the sheriff’s office noted that the two left lanes were moving, but a significant amount of traffic had built up into Grand Prairie.

Texas Sky Ranger said the incident involved a FedEx truck towing a double-trailer, a pickup truck, a sedan, and a flatbed vehicle hauler, the last two of which were seen lying on their side.

I-20 already has a reputation as being a dangerous roadway. In December, The Dallas Express reported that a study conducted by ValuePenguin concluded that I-20 is one of the deadliest stretches of road for pedestrians in the United States.

So far, the sheriff’s department has not confirmed which vehicle the deceased individual was traveling in. Nor have they disclosed if others suffered injuries during the event.

The vehicles involved in the crash stopped in a median between the eastbound lanes of the highway and the on-ramp east of Cedar Ridge Drive. Following the collision, traffic slowed substantially, with only two of four lanes remaining open.
