Man on moped killed in I-30 wreck in Dallas

An unidentified man died early Monday after the moped he was driving was struck by a sport utility vehicle on Interstate 30 near Fair Park in Dallas, according to reports.

The driver of the SUV, whose name was not immediately available, was arrested for intoxication manslaughter, said Kim Leach, spokeswoman for the Dallas County Sheriff's Office.

The accident was reported at 2 a.m. in the westbound lanes of I-30 near the intersection with 1st Avenue, Leach said.

Deputies who investigated the wreck said they did not believe the moped was licensed to be on the interstate, Leach said.

The man was taken to Baylor Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, Leach said.

He had not yet been identified early Monday, said a spokeswoman for the Dallas County medical examiner's office.
