Earlier this month in Grand Prairie, a driver of an SUV named Darrell Juarez was killed in an accident with a semi-truck when the driver collided with the truck that was disabled and legally parked with all required hazard lights and reflective triangles on the shoulder awaiting repair. According to a report by CBS, the accident occurred shortly after 9:00 p.m. on a Saturday night . According to police records, the driver of the SUV was driving erratically and may have crossed into the shoulder where the semi-truck was parked.
After colliding with the truck, the SUV rolled over and eventually burst into flames. The driver was unable to get out of the car and was badly burned and died. Fortunately the driver of the 18 wheeler was not injured.
At this point, police believe that the driver of the SUV may have been intoxicated, which seems obvious given his driving and the time and day of the needless collision.
