A Fort Worth head-on collision on westbound I-20 killed one person and injured four others early Friday morning.
The crash which occurred on westbound I-20 at Hemphill Street involved two vehicles, Fort Worth Police Department said.
Police found a man lying outside, next to his vehicle, unresponsive, when they arrived.
The four injured victims were treated for minor injuries, MedStar spokesman Matt Zavadsky said.
The collision blocked all westbound lanes of the highway.
Investigation is ongoing.
A head-on collision occurs when the front ends of two vehicles hit each other while travelling in opposite directions.
The most common causes of head-on collisions are driving or turning the wrong way, speeding, crossing over the centreline, sleeping while driving, failure to obey road signs, driving under the influence, distractions and bad weather.
Common head-on collision injuries include head, brain, spinal cord and abdominal injuries. Others are pelvic, chest, rib, foot and ankle injuries. Victims of a head-on collision may also experience neck or back pain. In extreme cases, a victim suffers death.
