Police recently reported that a two-vehicle rollover accident happened near the Texas Motor Speedway. A red sedan driven by a teenager ran a stop sign and then hit another vehicle.
The second vehicle, carrying a mother and father and their two children, rolled into a ditch upside-down near Championship Parkway and Highway 114. The father was pronounced dead at the scene. The mother and children were taken to local hospitals. The teens who caused the accident had injuries that were not life threatening. No arrests have occurred, as yet.
