Fort Worth, TX—Two deadly wrecks occurred on Sunday, March 21, 2010, in both Fort Worth and Arlington due to icy road conditions that were created during an early spring snowfall. The first crash occurred on a bridge that ran from East Loop 820 to eastbound Interstate 30, while the second fatal wreck occurred on Interstate 30 in Arlington, as reported by the Star-Telegram.
Fort Worth police responded to a motor vehicle collision (MVC) around 2:00 a.m., on the bridge from East Loop 820 to eastbound Interstate 30. Hung Nguyen, 22, of Arlington, was reportedly looking for damage on his car after he hit a tow truck in a minor wreck. Another passing car then slammed into Nguyen’s car, which threw him over a barrier and on the highway several hundred feet below. Nguyen was pronounced dead at the scene by responding medical professionals. The Tarrant County medical examiner has ruled his death an accident, which was caused by blunt force trauma and the fall.
