On Monday, November 20, 2023, at approximately 9:08 a.m., the Arlington Police Department responded to a tragic three-vehicle crash in the 3900 block of West Division Street.
According to investigators, a 2011 Chevrolet Silverado was traveling westbound on West Division Street when the driver veered into the eastbound lanes, colliding with a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado. The impact caused materials from the bed of the 2011 Silverado to be ejected, striking a 2012 Toyota Camry. Tragically, the driver of the 2001 Silverado was pronounced deceased at the scene.
The driver of the 2011 Silverado, identified as 44-year-old Guerrero Madrid Salgado, suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to a local hospital. Investigators suspect that Mr. Salgado was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash. Once medically cleared, he will be booked into the Arlington City Jail on charges of Intoxication Manslaughter and Possession of a Controlled Substance.
The driver of the 2012 Toyota Camry emerged unharmed and was released without any reported injuries.
The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office will release the identity of the deceased driver after notifying next of kin.
