Irving Police Investigate Fatality Crash

The Irving Police Department is investigating a fatal car crash that occurred at approximately 3 a.m. on Feb. 25 in the 3400 block of West State Highway 183.

Shortly before the crash occurred, several callers reported a vehicle traveling eastbound in the westbound lanes of the highway. As officers responded, additional calls came in reporting a crash near Beltline Road. Officers located a head-on collision between the wrong-way driver and another vehicle.

The drivers of both cars were transported to Parkland Hospital but were pronounced deceased. A passenger in the car traveling the proper direction was also transported to the hospital with serious, but not life-threatening, injuries. 

The deceased drivers involved in the crash are identified as 38-year-old Tyrone Wilson of Bedford, and 40-year-old Sidney Leigh Dew of Santa Ana, California (driver of the wrong-way vehicle). The crash and the events leading up to it are still under investigation.
