LAKE DALLAS — Lake Dallas officers are investigating a four-vehicle crash this past weekend that led to the death of 57-year-old Lake Dallas resident Betty White.
According to police, a 47-year-old Hickory Creek man also was injured and was flown to Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas for medical treatment. He is still in the hospital but his condition is unknown, according to police.
The Hickory Creek man was driving a sport utility vehicle when he struck three vehicles, according to police. No other information about the man was available or released.
The accident occurred at about 3:30 p.m. Saturday in the 500 block of the Interstate 35E service road in Lake Dallas.
A 19-year-old Lewisville man and a 45-year-old Corinth man were the drivers of the other two vehicles involved.
White was taken from the scene and was treated at Denton Regional Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead nearly one hour after the accident.
The Tarrant County Medical Examiner ruled White’s death an accident and that she died from blunt force injuries to her chest.
The Lewisville man and Corinth man had no reported injuries, Police Capt. Wes Frazier said.
The investigation was continuing Monday, he said.
He also said it will be several days before a full report is available because of “the severity and complexity of the accident.”
