3 men killed after wrong-way crash in southeast Dallas causes car to split in two

Three men were killed and a fourth was taken to the hospital in critical condition after a wrong-way crash Tuesday night in southeast Dallas.

Police said that around 8:15 p.m., a 28-year-old man was driving down 4800 Great Trinity Forest Way, near the Trinity River, when another car crossed over the center median into wrong-way traffic and crashed into him.

The crash caused the second car, which was driven by a 22-year old man with two passengers, to split in half, police said. The front end through the engine firewall stayed on Great Trinity Forest Way, and the passenger compartment and back half of the car went over a side wall and dropped to a grassy area about 50 feet below, police said.

All three men were ejected from the car and died at the scene, police said. None of the victims were identified.

The 28-year-old driver of the other car, who was not identified, was taken to a local hospital in critical condition.

No other information about the crash was made available. Dallas police are still investigating the incident.
