On Thursday, December 2, 2021, at approximately 11:55 a.m., the Arlington Police Department responded to a single vehicle crash in the 1600 block of W. Abram Street.

A Lexus ES-350 was traveling westbound along Abram Street when it suddenly left the roadway at a high rate of speed and struck one of the concrete pillars of the Fielder Road overpass.
