LEWISVILLE — A 64-year-old man died Tuesday night when he fell off the Lake Lewisville Bridge after a driver ran into the man’s disabled vehicle.
According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, at 8:40 p.m. troopers were called to the Lake Lewisville Bridge on Interstate 35E. They determined Gholamreza Sabzghabaei’s black Nissan was disabled on the bridge and partially in the right lane. Sabzghabaei was on the phone with 911 operators, trying to get them to the scene.
A white van traveling north on I35E struck the black Nissan while Sabzghabaei was still outside the vehicle. The impact threw him over the railing and into the water below.
Good Samaritans jumped in the water to get Sabzghabaei to the shore, where they performed CPR until first responders arrived. However, Sabzghabaei died at the scene.
The crash remains under investigation. It is unclear if the driver of the van, a 22-year-old from Lake Dallas, will face charges in the incident.

Deadly accidents happen on Texas roads on a daily basis. It is expecially saddening that these accidents are almost never simply “accidents”. There is a big difference between an accident and being negligent and causing an accident. Especially when someone’s life is taken as a result. At Guest and Gray, we know that when something like this happens, worrying about going after the person who did this may be far from your mind. That is completely understandable. But if your family is in that predicament, you need someone on your side who will fight for your family’s rights against that person who took your loved one away from you by their negligent actions. Wrongful death actions have a two years statute of limitations period in Texas and the sooner you file, the easier you claim is to prove. The insurance company wants to settle with you now for pennies on the dollar. We won’t let that happen. Let Scott Gray and his experienced staff get to work on your case. Call Today!
