Dallas police said a woman was expected to be charged in a crash that killed two adults and two children.
The accident occurred shortly before 5:45 a.m., on lanes heading south at Block 6500 of SouthRL Thornton Highway.
Eyewitnesses told police that an earlier crash blocked both left lanes, and traffic merged into the right lane.
The victims’ car was stopped in the right lane, waiting for the rear traffic in front of them to move forward.
That was when eyewitnesses said that a woman driving a blue 2005 BMW failed to stop due to traffic, and hit the rear of the victims’ car at “high speed with no evidence of any braking prior to collision.”
The victims’ car then collided with the vehicle in front of them, causing a chain reaction with the other vehicles.
Four people in the victims’ car were killed as a result of the accident. It has not been identified yet.
A male juvenile died at the scene, while another juvenile died at the Children’s Hospital.
It was later announced that two people, a man and a woman, had died in a local hospital.
Police said the BMW driver, who had not yet been identified, had been taken to hospital to receive treatment for serious injuries.
She is expected to be charged with four counts of murder due to criminal negligence, according to police.
The investigation into this accident is still ongoing.
