DENTON, TX (12/18/2016) — Police looking for two reckless drivers following Sunday’s fatal accident on University Drive in Denton.
According to authorities, 27-year-old Cameron Rice (of Aubrey) was killed in a multi-vehicle collision that occurred in the 9900 block of East University Drive (US-380) in Denton, Texas.
Police reported that shortly after 1:00 p.m., the drivers of a white Jeep Cherokee (with large off-road tires and a rear-window decal reading “Rough Country”) and a black Nissan Infiniti G35 were driving recklessly—and possibly racing—when the Jeep made an unsafe lane change in front of a 2005 Cadillac CTS, driven by Rice.
Rice attempted to make an evasive maneuver, but lost control of his vehicle which veered into oncoming traffic, where he struck a Toyota RAV4 and a Chevrolet Cruze.
Rice lost his life in the wreckage.
Officials stated that the two drivers of the Toyota and Chevrolet—identified only as a 62-year-old woman and a 54-year-old woman—were transported to Denton Regional Medical Center with serious injuries.
Details are still limited since the investigation is currently pending. However, the drivers who police suspect may have been racing are likely to face criminal charges (and potentially, civil claims from the victims) for this wreck. If you may have information on these drivers, please call the Denton PD at (940) 349-7241.
We will provide more information as it becomes available.
