A 21-year-old woman was killed and four adults were injured, police say, when an intoxicated and speeding driver slammed into another driver in Southern Dallas Sunday night.

Dallas police said a 29-year-old woman was behind the wheel of a Ford Crown Victoria and headed westbound when she slammed into a Chrysler 300 at the intersection of Great Trinity Forest Way and Jim Miller Road at about 10:50 p.m. Sunday.

According to investigators with the Dallas Police Department, a 17-year-old boy with four adult passengers was driving the Chrysler 300 eastbound on Great Trinity Forest Way and was turning northbound onto Jim Miller Road when they were struck.

From a video taken at the scene of the crash, both vehicles were destroyed and it appears the Crown Victoria may have hit a pole before coming to a stop.
