One woman was killed in a car accident between Oakland and Beach Street on Interstate 30.

A woman died early Monday in a car accident on I-30 in east Fort Worth.

The woman was ejected from her vehicle after it was struck by a minivan, said Cpl. Tracey Knight, a police spokeswoman. Police are still investigating, but they believe the wreck occurred after the woman’s vehicle stalled in the middle of the freeway, “possibly due to a previous accident.”

The fatality happened in the westbound lane of I-30 between Oakland Boulevard and Beach Street about 1:30 a.m.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene, Knight said.

A second woman in her vehicle was transported to John Peter Smith Hospital with critical injuries, MedStar spokesman Matt Zavadsky said.

The driver of the second vehicle suffered minor injuries and was treated at the scene and released.

The name of the woman who died was not available.
