Wrong-Way Crash In Irving Sends One To The Hospital

IRVING (CBSDFW.COM) – A van driver in Irving is very fortunate to be alive following a wrong-way crash early this morning.

Around midnight, a van was heading west on Highway 114 near Cistercian when the driver was shocked to see headlights coming right at him. It was too late to swerve out of the way and the van was clobbered by an on-coming car, causing massive damage to both vehicles.

Then, with police and firefighters on the scene, an airport shuttle bus careened into the crash site, striking a parked car belonging to the Irving Fire Department Battalion Chief in charge of the scene.

Despite severe damage to the vehicles, there were no serious injuries. Police thought the wrong-way driver seemed confused and was therefore sent to the hospital to have blood drawn to check his alcohol level.

    I live near royal and webbs chapel, born and raised here 50 yr.s, Ive never seen anything like the serious crashes we have now, almost daily there, and it always appears to be the same issue. We have millions of drivers on our streets that were not taught to “drive defensively” as we are here. Most illegals didnt grow up around a family car, many arrive here with zero experince, buy a car and drive, without being tested, thats why we have so many hit and runs, and abandoned vehicles.Furthermore, I know for fact, some muni’s have policy of “if its a work vehicle,daytime, and theyre obvious illegals” let them go, for whatever, like inspect. reg. etc. because you almost never get a correct name and the system is over-run.Another case that could be solved by closing the border.
