On Saturday, June 22, 2013 at around 9:00 p.m., Arlington Officers were dispatched to a major crash in the 1000 block of N. Fielder Road at Pecan Park Drive. When officers arrived on scene, they found two vehicles that were involved in the crash. Investigators believe that a sedan was traveling southbound on Fielder while a pickup truck was traveling eastbound on Pecan Park Drive. This is a signalized intersection. Both vehicles collided with one another which caused the pickup truck to overturn and catch fire. The driver of the pickup truck, a male in his 40’s, was pronounced deceased at the scene. A male driver and female passenger occupying the sedan were transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The intersection was closed for a couple of hours while investigators worked to determine the causes of the crash. Intoxication is believed to have played a factor in this crash.
Once next of kin has been notified, the Tarrant County Medical Examiner will release the identity of the deceased on their website.
