Two women die in rollover wreck near downtown Fort Worth
BY BILL MILLER
FORT WORTH — Two women died early Friday when they were ejected from a black Honda sedan that rolled just northeast of the downtown area, police said.
The names of the woman, who appeared to be in their 20s, were withheld until their families could be notified, said Sgt. Rodney Bangs, supervisor of the traffic investigation unit.
The wreck was reported about 3 a.m. on the exit ramp that leads from westbound Texas 121, also called the Airport Freeway, to southbound Interstate 35W.
“The driver struck the guardrail, then lost control causing the vehicle to roll and eject both the driver and the passenger,” Bangs said. “Also, it does not appear as though they were wearing their seat belts.”
Several alcoholic beverage containers were found at the scene, Bangs said.
But, he added, “we don’t know at this point if alcohol was a factor in the crash.”
