A young woman died and three other people were hurt Friday in a two-vehicle wreck in southern Tarrant County, according to reports.
The wreck was reported at 4:52 p.m. in the 5700 block of Rendon-Bloodworth Road, said Terry Grisham, spokesman for the Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office.
The road is also called also called Farm Road 1187. The scene of the wreck was on a curve just east of the intersection with Rendon Road.
The names of people involved in the wreck and the vehicle descriptions were unavailable late Friday evening, Grisham said.
He explained, however, that the wreck happened when the driver of a westbound vehicle, described as a young woman, turned left from the road, which put it in the path of an eastbound vehicle, Grisham said.
"We don’t know exactly why," he said, "but there are driveways and other small roadways leading off of the highway."
The eastbound vehicle, carrying a woman and a "school-age" boy, struck the westbound vehicle broadside, Grisham said.
The passenger of the westbound car, also described as a young woman, was pronounced dead at the scene, he said.
One person was put on a helicopter ambulance, but Grisham did not know from which vehicle. Two other people were taken to the hospital by ground ambulances, he added. EMS crews from Crowley and Rendon responded, he said.
Accident investigators were still working the scene late Friday evening, Grisham said.
