Wrong Way Driver Causes Deadly Crash Along I-20

Investigators for the Dallas County Sheriff's Department said a wrong way driver caused a deadly crash along Interstate 20 in Duncanville Saturday.

Officers said the driver of a Nissan Armada was going eastbound in the westbound lanes Saturday. They said that driver sideswiped a vehicle, which caused that driver to spin out of control and slam into a third vehicle.

Police said the wrong way driver then hit a fourth vehicle head-on. The fourth vehicle then ran into a semi-truck, which caused the semi to jackknife and slam into the center median. The wrong way driver's car then burst into flames.

The wrong way driver, identified as Guillermo Suarez, is charged with driving while intoxicated and intoxication manslaughter with a vehicle, online records show.

The driver of the fourth vehicle that the wrong way driver hit head on died in the crash. So far that person has not been identified.

I-20 remained closed for several hours Saturday evening as crews investigated, but was reopened just before midnight.
