Driver Dies After 1-Vehicle Crash Along US Highway 175 In Dallas

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) — One person is dead after an early morning crash along Highway 175, the C.F. Hawn Freeway.

It was just before 4:00 a.m. when deputies with the Dallas County Sheriff's Office were sent to an accident -- involving a lone vehicle -- in the westbound lanes of 175, near Prairie Creek.

Investigators believe the driver of the 2013 Lincoln sedan lost control of the vehicle and struck a concrete wall. The car bounced off the wall and went down a ditch. Officials say the crash victim, who was the only person in the car, was not wearing a seatbelt.
