GRAPEVINE (CBSDFW.COM) - A man from North Richland Hills is dead after his car collided with a tractor-trailer around 4:04 a.m. on the on-ramp to the eastbound lanes of I-635E from Highway 114.

Police say the man was traveling the wrong way when his Honda collided head-on with the semi.

The driver has been identified as 22-year-old Jorge Rico.

Rico’s time of death is listed on the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s website as 4:15 a.m., with a cause of death being multiple blunt force injuries.

Rico was the only person injured in the crash, which shut down the I-635E on-ramp for two hours.

Investigators suspect alcohol was a factor in the incident, according to Grapevine PD spokesman Sgt. Robert Eberling.
