Suspected Drunk Driver Crashed Into Tree and Dies On Dallas North Tollway
Alcohol causes, directly or indirectly, numerous traffic accidents every day in Texas and across the country. Driving drunk impairs your judgment and adds precious seconds to reflexes and response time. Those seconds can mean the difference between a near-miss and a fatal accident.
Was it impaired judgment, loss of consciousness, or lethargic reflexes that cause a recent death in Plano, Texas? It’s hard to say since the only person directly involved didn’t survive to tell her side of the story.
What officials and witnesses could tell us is this: a Nissan Murano started swerving out of control while driving on the Dallas North Highway. This happened last Monday morning.
The 33-year-old driver of the Nissan took the Parker Road exit at an excessive speed, causing the vehicle to completely lose control.
The Murano collided with a tree. The female driver was pulled from the vehicle and taken to the hospital, where she was later pronounced dead.
Thankfully, no one else was in the car. No one else was directly involved in the accident.
Police believe this woman was driving under the influence of alcohol. Choosing to drive drunk cost this Texas woman her life, leaving a damaged vehicle and a grieving family.
