Man killed in Denton crash

Posted: Updated:

A 20-year-old driver died Thursday in a car crash in the 2800 block of I-35, south of Oak Street in Denton, police say.

Police received a call regarding the crash at 2:35 p.m., in which a caller explained that a vehicle had rolled over and the driver had been thrown from it.

When police arrived on scene, they found the victim unconscious. He was taken by ambulance to Denton Fire and Rescue to Presbyterian Hospital, but died from his injuries.

Police believe the driver, who was by himself, hit a highway sign before his car flipped and he was ejected. They do not know whether or not he was wearing a seatbelt.

Following the crash, I-35 northbound was shut down at mile marker 467 to Oak Street. One lane of traffic has since reopened, and the flow of traffic may be restricted for some time.

Police continue to investigate.
