What Happened

Texas Department of Public Safety officials are investigating a crash that injured a driver at Trinity Mills Rd in Carrollton, TX on September 3rd, 2022. Officers believe the incident happened around 9:14 p.m. According to their investigation, a tractor-trailer operated by a 38-year-old Denton, TX man was headed westbound on Trinity Mills Rd when it attempted to turn into a private drive behind a WinCo building. The truck is said to have come to a stop, blocking three traffic lanes as it waited for another vehicle to pass. While in the process of making the turn, an approaching westbound Ford Escape, operated by 31-year-old Mackenzie Dee Pena, struck the vehicle. Pena, who officers allege may have been distracted at the time of the collision, suffered serious injuries. The other driver, who officers allege turned from an incorrect lane, was not injured.
