One person has died, and another is in critical condition after a three-vehicle crash in Arlington on Saturday.
The Arlington Police Department said the crash occurred at 6:27 p.m. on February 4. It occurred on South Center Street near Interstate 20, as reported by WFAA News.
The accident occurred between a 2021 Ford Mustang, a 2018 Chevrolet Silverado, and a 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer.
When officers arrived on the scene, bystanders had taken the driver and passenger out of the Mustang, which had caught fire.
They were taken to a nearby hospital to receive treatment for their injuries. Both were in critical condition, and the passenger, a 20-year-old man, later died from his injuries.
The driver, an 18-year-old man, remains in critical condition, per CBS News.
As reported by WFAA News, Tarrant County officials will wait to identify the 20-year-old man until they have contacted the next of kin.
Police believe the two men in the Mustang were driving northbound on South Center Street when the driver lost control of the vehicle as he was attempting to change lanes.
The driver reportedly crossed the center median and into the southbound lanes before colliding with the Silverado and the Lancer.
The drivers of the Silverado and Lancer were not seriously injured.
No one else was seriously injured, and an investigation into the cause of the accident remains ongoing. Although the official reason for the crash is unknown, police have not ruled out excessive speed, per CBS News.
