Pickup and Car Collide in Plano
In a recent Plano accident, the northbound lanes of Hwy 75 were closed near Legacy Drive. The driver of a pickup truck was in the left lane when traffic abruptly stopped. This driver attempted to prevent an accident by swerving beside a vehicle in front of him. Instead, he entered the HOV lane on the highway and struck a sedan.
As a result, this sedan traveled along the concrete barrier of the highway and hit a light pole, flipping it upside down. Four people in the car were taken to the hospital, according to CBS Local DFW. Three of these people only had minor injuries, but a young girl was dead on arrival.
The five people in the pickup were not injured. The Plano Police Department is still investigating the crash. All occupants had on their seat belts or proper child safety seats.
