A car driving the wrong way Monday morning hit an Irving Independent School District truck head on in Irving.

It happened on the flyover ramp that connects Westbound Irving Boulevard to state Highway 183 at about 2:30 a.m. 

Police say the driver of the school district pickup had been heading the correct way on the ramp, when it was hit head-on.  Officers say the Irving ISD truck got to the top of the ramp and collided with the car going to the wrong way.

A Fire-Rescue chief tells NBC 5 that two ambulances took both drivers to Parkland Hospital. 

Officers on the scene say the wrong-way driver does have life-threatening injuries.  The ISD employee is seriously hurt, but is expected to recover.

Police shut down the ramp for more than an hour to investigate. The ramp reopened nearly one hour after the investigation.

The flyover ramp is a one-way road.  Officers believe the wrong-way driver made a u-turn either on the ramp or on the freeway for some reason.

NBC5 is still waiting for more information from the school district about where the district’s pickup had been heading when the wreck happened.
