Lakeside crash kills girl, injures man

LAKESIDE -- A girl -- believed to be a teen -- died this morning and a man was injured in a two-vehicle wreck in Lakeside.

The wreck occurred about 8:20 a.m. in the 9200 block of Confederate Park Road.

Lakeside Police Chief Lee Pitts said the victim was driving a Cadillac west on Confederate Park Road when she drifted into oncoming lanes in a curve on the road and was struck by an eastbound one-ton dually pickup.

The girl was pronounced dead at the scene despite efforts by paramedics, Pitts said. She had not been positively identified as of 11:30 a.m. but Pitts said she appears to be a teenager.

"We haven’t found any identification on her," Pitts said. "We're just kind of speculating who it may be at this time. The address from the vehicle comes back to Azle."

The pickup driver complained of pain to his ribs and knee and was taken by a relative to an area hospital, Pitts said.

Pitts said the wreck is under investigation by the Tarrant County Sheriff's Department.
