    One person is dead after a crash on the Dallas North Tollway early Saturday morning.

    The crash happened near the Maple Avenue overpass at about 2:20 a.m., according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.

    Troopers were called to the crash and preliminary investigations found that a Cadillac CTS was traveling north in the southbound lanes of DNT when it struck a Chevrolet Impala and a Nissan Altima.

    The person who died in the crash was identified by the Dallas County Medical Examiner as 23-year-old Shelbi Stephens. She was a graduate of DeSoto High School and leaves behind a 4-year-old son.

    [NATL] New Study Says Beards are 'Dirtier' Than Dogs

    A recent study suggests that a man's beard contains more germs than a dog's fur. All 18 men's beards studied by researchers at Switzerland's Hirslanden Clinic had higher levels of bacteria in them, compared to only 23 out of 30 dogs. Some beards had so much beard bacteria the men could get sick, the study says.

    The driver of the Cadillac and the four occupants of the Nissan were transported to a nearby hospital with serious injuries.

    Southbound lanes of the DNT were reopened at 7:04 a.m. and investigations were ongoing.
