A wrong-way driver who police believe was intoxicated slammed his vehicle head-on into another vehicle Sunday morning, killing a Fort Worth man and injuring another person on Texas 121 near Grapevine Mills mall, police said.
The suspect, Derrick Lockhart, 37, of DeSoto, faces charges of intoxication manslaughter with a vehicle and intoxication assault with a vehicle, police said.
Lockhart was treated at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center and then taken into custody.
The victim was identified as Stephen Herrera, 38, of Fort Worth, according to the Tarrant County medical examiner's website on Sunday. A ruling on his death was pending an autopsy.
Another victim suffered minor injuries in the three-vehicle crash, which was reported just after 4 a.m.
Police believe Lockhart was southbound in the northbound lanes of Texas 121 when the collision occurred.
Authorities closed down the northbound lanes at Bass Pro Drive for more than five hours as they investigated.
