An 18-year-old woman was killed Thursday night after she was ejected from a vehicle that rolled over several times on Interstate 35W in far south Fort Worth, police reported.

The vehicle was entering northbound I-35W from East Rendon Crowley Road near Burleson when the driver attempted to change lanes, causing the vehicle to flip, said Cpl. Tracey Knight, a Fort Worth police spokeswoman.

MedStar ambulances arrived at 8:49 p.m. to find the woman in critical condition, and two people in stable condition, MedStar spokesman Matt Zavadsky said. Soon afterward, the woman died at the scene, he said.

Fort Worth police were investigating the crash.

The Tarrant County medical examiner’s office identified the victim as Destiny Rackley. No town of residence was reported. Monica S. Nagy
