A father of two was killed in a fatal car crash in North Fort Worth yesterday.
The victim, who has been identified as David Martinez, 47, was driving a white Honda along Texas 114 near the Texas Motor Speedway when he was struck by a Dodge vehicle that ran a stop sign at the intersection with Championship Parkway.
The Honda rolled into the ditch, killing the driver at the crash scene. His wife, Jenna, and two children were also in the vehicle at the time of the wreck, and were each hospitalized with injuries.
According to reports, it appears the daughter (believed to be aged 8-9) suffered the worst injuries and was flown to Cook Children’s Medical Center with critical injuries. The son (believed to be aged 12-14) was knocked unconscious in the collision. Both he and his mother are believed to have sustained serious injuries in the accident.
The driver who failed to stop at the intersection is understood to be a teenage driver who had two teenage passengers in his vehicle at the time of the wreck. All three were transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The wreck happened at around 5:30pm Sunday afternoon.
As of yet, no arrests have been made regarding this tragic accident.
Sadly, that was not the only deadly motor vehicle accident to occur in Tarrant County over the weekend. In Arlington, a two-vehicle collision resulted in the death of one motorist, and serious injuries to another.
The wreck occurred at approximately 3:30 am at the intersection of Allen and Arbrook.
The deceased driver has been identified as Lee Overstreet, 37. The cause of death was listed as head trauma. The other driver injured in the crash has not been identified and is not believed to be in serious condition.
Our thoughts are with all those who have lost someone close to them or who are recovering from their injuries.
