According to police, several cars collided in the I-35E express lanes in Carrollton at about 5 p.m. Thursday. One of the drivers, identified by police as 26-year-old Dillon Stoffregen, from Flower Mound, got out of his car and began to get in a verbal argument with others involved in the crash.
As the argument began to escalate, Stoffregen reportedly began to assault some of the other drivers as well as a passerby who stopped to help, stabbing two and strangling a third.
