The Grapevine Police Department is investigating a deadly crash that shut down westbound lanes of SH-114 overnight for approximately five hours.
Just after 11:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 18, 2023, the driver of a sedan veered right on SH-114 and struck a light pole. The driver overcorrected and ended up crossing several lanes of traffic in front of a pickup. The pickup t-boned the sedan.
Both vehicles were stopped on the highway as witnesses called 9-1-1. The driver of the sedan was trapped behind the wheel.
Grapevine Police tried to free the driver and render aid, but the 30-year-old man was pronounced deceased by Grapevine Fire paramedics a short time later. The driver of the pickup was transported to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
Grapevine Police shut down westbound lanes of SH-114 for approximately five hours between William D. Tate and Texan Trail while a crash team investigated the accident. Officers from the Irving Police Department and DFW Airport Police Department assisted with the closure.
