A few minutes later, police said another motorist called to say he hit someone who was on the roadway.
“Officers responded within five minutes of the first 911 call, and discovered a female already deceased,” said Amanda McNew with the Grapevine Police Department. “Investigators spoke to two drivers who stopped in connection to the accident, as well as several passengers. All drivers and witnesses were fully cooperative. Nobody is facing charges for the female’s death.”
Officials said that officers shut down SH-121 as they investigated the crash. At 1 a.m. another motorist crashed into a Grapevine firetruck that was on the scene. Nobody was hurt and police arrested that driver for alleged DWI.
“While the secondary crash was a result of intoxication, it is a great reminder to always slow down and move over when you see crews at work,” said McNew.
