Woman reported killed in south Fort Worth wreck

A 36-year-old woman was killed in a wreck on I-35 in south Fort Worth late Friday in which one of the vehicles involved was sent into a concrete barricade, according to reports.

The northbound vehicles collided about 11:10 p.m. in the 12400 block of I-35 near the Rendon-Crowley Road exit, Fort Worth police said in a statement.

A black Lexus driven by Christopher Alami, 21, of Burleson clipped the back of a gray Hyundai SUV occupied by a woman and her son, police spokesman Lt. Paul Henderson said in the statement. The Lexus went out of control and struck a concrete barrier on the passenger side, killing the passenger in the Lexus, Henderson said.

The woman and her son were uninjured.

Henderson said in the statement that Alami was taken to JPS hospital with minor injuries and later arrested on suspicion of intoxication manslaughter. Police performed a mandatory blood test for alcohol, the statement said.

The identity of the woman who died in the wreck was withheld pending a medical examiner's report.
