Garland, TX (May 1, 2022) – A crash reported in the Garland area claimed the life of a young woman, according to reports. Just before midnight on April 21, the Texas Department of Public Safety was dispatched to the site of an auto wreck on Country Club Drive.
Reports show that a 19-year-old was traveling in the area of Country Club Drive and US Highway 66. As the vehicle ran a red light at the intersection, it crashed into a second vehicle. The impact of the crash caused the SUV to lift off the ground and launch into a telephone pole.
The driver of the second vehicle, a 25-year-old woman, was declared deceased at the scene.
The 19-year-old was arrested for intoxication manslaughter.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
