Teenager Killed, 4 Others Injured In Grand Prairie Car Crash

A 17-year-old boy died and four others were injured late Friday in a single-car crash on Interstate 20 in Grand Prairie, police said.

The vehicle had been speeding on I-20 at around 10pm when the driver lost control and crashed into a guardrail, says the Grand Prairie police in a report.

According to reports from various news sites, a single car was reportedly speeding at about 10:14 p.m. along Interstate 20 in Grand Prairie, when the driver of the car seemed to have lost control of the vehicle.

It then hit a guardrail on the interstate near State Highway 161, resulting in the fatal car crash, police said, Dallas Morning News reported.

Officers said that the car had five occupants. All of them were hurt in the crash and were taken to a nearby hospital.

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s office withheld the name of the teenager killed during the car crash on I-20, until they were able to notify his next of kin. They later announced that it was 17-year-old Derrick Hall who died after sustaining severe injuries during the car crash.

One of the five passengers of the speeding car, a 17-year-old boy named Derrick Hall, sustained severe injuries from the accident. He died from his injuries after reaching the hospital.
