A fatal crash on I-20 in Arlington has prompted investigators to continue digging for answers as to what caused the October 7 accident.
According to police, at approximately 2 p.m. Tuesday, a Mazda sedan was traveling very slowly in the far right lane of the interstate when a Honda sedan attempted to merge onto I-20 but crashed into the rear of the Mazda. A third vehicle, a Lexus passenger car, was struck by Mazda.
Though the driver of the Mazda did not sustain any significant injuries, an adult male passenger riding in the Mazda's back seat died on the scene. Reports indicate that three other passengers in the Mazda were injured, two of which were small children.
The passengers in the Lexus were not injured and the driver of the Honda was taken to the hospital to be checked for injuries.
Police have not released the names of those involved in the accident, but the deceased male passenger was identified as a teenager.
