DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - Two people were killed and two others were injured after a fiery car crash in Dallas. Emergency crews were called to the northbound service road of Central Expressway, near Lemmon Avenue, around 1:30 a.m. Friday morning. Police arrived to find a vehicle on fire and people trapped inside.
The car actually crashed into the Amli at Cityplace apartment complex, knocking down a fence, hitting a tree and nearly running into an apartment building. “It was just horrible. I didn’t know what to think,” said witness John Whitmire. “The apartments, I thought they were going to catch fire. They looked like they were on fire, the apartments, on the side of the building. And the trees was catching fire, the telephone pole. It was horrible.”
A group of several Good Samaritans tried to rescue those inside, but were pushed back by the flames. Fire officials arrived a short time later, but two people had already died at the scene. Two others were taken to the burn unit of Parkland Hospital in Dallas.
There has been no immediate word on what caused the crash. The names of the victims have not been released. Police are struggling to identify the victims because of the severe burns. The incident is still under investigation.
