Fiery Crash on US 75/Central Expressway Sends One to Hospital

A fiery early morning crash on southbound U.S. 75/Central Expressway at Knox-Henderson in Dallas led to the closure of three lanes for a brief period on Thursday.

Just before 3 a.m., NBC 5 crews arrived at the scene to find a car with its back tires propped up on a concrete barrier. Firefighters were dousing the car with fire-retardant foam. Another vehicle nearby had its airbags deployed.

The car caught fire after the crash, and first responders reported that at least one person was taken to the hospital. The condition of the injured person is currently unknown.

Although the flames were extinguished, by 5 a.m., Texas Department of Transportation cameras showed vehicles only passing along the shoulder as crews worked to clear the roadway. By 5:40 a.m., the roadway was fully open, and traffic was flowing freely.
