A tragedy struck on a South Arlington street when a night drive turned deadly for a 19-year-old man, authorities said. The fatal crash occurred on Saturday at the intersection of South Collins Street and North Webb Ferrell Road, as per WFAA report.
The collision happened around 9:58 p.m. involving a 2015 Volkswagen and a 2022 Silverado. The driver of the Volkswagen, identified as Jose Angel Adan, was rushed to a hospital where he was pronounced dead, and while it was a night where lives were forever changed, no one else was injured in the harrowing incident, as per Irving Journal.
Both vehicles, as police describe, drove through the intersection simultaneously—the Volkswagen eastbound on Webb Ferrell and the Silverado southbound on Collins—colliding with each other in a violent clash of metal. The Arlington Police continue to investigate what led to these two paths intersecting in such a catastrophic way, per Hoodline.
Survived by the shock are a passenger from the Volkswagen and the driver of the Silverado, who were fortunate to emerge without physical harm. The Tarrant County Medical Examiner's Office will release further details once the next of kin has been duly informed.
