Three Killed When Driver Slams Into Rear of Semi-Truck at Dallas Stoplight

Three people were killed early Monday when the driver of a sedan slammed into the back of a stopped tractor-trailer.

Dallas police said three adult males were headed northbound on Harry Hines at about 3 a.m. when they crashed into the back of a semi stopped at a traffic light at Lombardy Lane.

The two males riding in the front of the vehicle were killed instantly, officials said. The passenger in the back of the car was in critical condition when he was transported to a nearby hospital. The man later died.

The driver of the tractor-trailer was not injured.

The identities of the three people killed in the crash have not been released.

This tragedy occurred very early in the Monday morning hours. It is not known what the men were doing or why they were out so late, or so early. We have no information as to whether alcohol was a factor in the crash. It appears from the statements by police and the reporting from that the driver made some sort of mistake at the wheel that resulted in the accident. He either did not see the stopped truck or there was some other reason that he did not see the truck and failed to stop.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families as they grieve the loss of their loved ones.
