FORT WORTH, TX (12/08/2016) — Police are investigating a major crash that left six people injured on Thursday afternoon.
According to authorities, five teenagers remain hospitalized following a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of Everman Parkway and Interstate 35W in Fort Worth, Texas.
Everman police Sgt. C.W. Spencer reported that at around 1:15 p.m., an attempt was made to stop a Mazda passenger vehicle that was traveling erratically at a high rate of speed. The pursuit was soon cancelled in the interest of public safety, but within minutes, the driver had already crashed into a Dodge Ram pickup truck after reportedly running a red light.
The Mazda carried five teenage occupants; all were rushed to hospitals for treatment. Three of the teens were in critical condition, one was in serious condition, and another was in good condition. According to CBS 11, some of all of the occupants were students from the Everman school district.
The teens were taken to John Peter Smith Hospital and Texas Health Harris Methodist for treatment; their current conditions are unknown.
The driver of the Dodge was also injured in the collision, but has since been released from the hospital.
This accident remains under investigation.
The investigation is still in its early early, meaning that details are very limited at this time. However, the driver who initiated this wreck placed the lives of many in danger, and will likely face serious criminal charges (not to mention civil claims).
