Eight Injured in Southeast Dallas Crash


Eight people were injured after a crash in southeast Dallas early Sunday.

According to the Dallas County Sheriff's Department, deputies were dispatched to a major accident at the intersection of Westbound CF Hawn Freeway and St. Augustine Drive at about 1:06 a.m.

Officials said when deputies arrived, they saw multiple Dallas Police Department units and two wrecked vehicles at the scene.

The first vehicle, 1999 black Chevrolet Silverado, struck a pole at the intersection, deputies said.

The second vehicle, a 2015 gray Nissan Pathfinder, was farther down the service road, about 50 feet west of St. Augustine Road.

When deputies approached to the Chevrolet, they saw a woman laying on the sidewalk beside the vehicle. The woman appeared to be severely burned but was responsive, deputies said.

Dallas Fire-Rescue took the woman to Parkland Memorial Hospital in critical condition. 

Before deputies arrived, the driver and a second passenger of the Chevrolet had been transported to Parkland and Baylor Scott and White University Medical Center, respectively.

The man, who told deputies he was the driver of the Nissan, was transported to Baylor Scott and White.

Dallas police told deputies there were four other occupants of the Nissan who were in the parking lot waiting on ambulances.
