Man killed, 3 injured when car drives into oncoming traffic in North Richland Hills

A man died and three people were sent to hospitals with injuries after a GMC Yukon drove into oncoming traffic in North Richland Hills on Monday evening and hit an oncoming Chevrolet truck towing a trailer head-on, police said.

The victim, who was a passenger in the truck, died of his injuries at a local hospital. The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office identified him Tuesday as Enrique Carrillo Ramirez, 48.

The driver of the GMC Yukon was a woman who was in serious condition, police said, and the driver of the truck was a man in critical condition. A man in a Honda sedan that was struck by the trailer sustained minor injuries, police said.

Police responded to the scene of the crash in the 6900 block of Davis Boulevard near Odell Street a little before 6 p.m. Monday. The road was closed for about five hours, from 6 to 11 p.m., as investigators mapped the scene, police said.

Officers determined the Yukon was heading north on Davis Boulevard when it drove into oncoming southbound traffic, striking the truck. Two other cars got caught up in the crash, police said — a northbound Honda sedan hit the trailer behind the truck and a Nissan sedan was hit with debris.

Police said it’s unclear at this time if charges will be filed.
