On 10/29/2012, at 9:55 a.m., the Coppell Police Department received reports of a single vehicle major accident on Westbound IH 635 between S. Beltline Road and S. Royal Lane. Coppell Police and Fire Departments were dispatched and located the accident scene in the median of IH635 between Beltline Rd. and Freeport Parkway.
Preliminary investigation indicates a Toyota Camry traveling Westbound on IH 635, left the roadway onto the center median, and struck a TxDOT sign pole. The driver, and only occupant of the vehicle, was pinned inside and was extricated by the Coppell Fire Department. The driver was transported to Las Colinas Medical Center and pronounced deceased.
The driver was identified as a 66 year old female resident of Dallas.
The Coppell Police Traffic Division and Dallas County Medical Examiner’s office are investigating the accident. Neither speed nor alcohol appear to be a factor in the crash.
