As North Texas begins to warm up this week, more drivers are venturing out on the roads. Several have already died due to the dangerous conditions the frozen roads created. It will be important to continue to drive safely and carefully, and remember accidents happen with or without ice. Two motorists were killed within the last two weeks before winter weather struck; one was a stranded driver near downtown Dallas, the other was a 20-year-old Denton student. 33-year-old Darian Davis and another man were attempting to move a broken down car when an SUV struck them last Wednesday, killing Davis and injuring the man, and a woman in the vehicle, according to MyFOX DFW. Police say alcohol may have been a factor in the crash. Police are also still investigating the accident that caused a North Texas student’s death. MyFOX DFW reported that the driver hit a highway sign and was ejected from his vehicle. He was taken to a local hospital, where he died from his injuries.
