On Monday, February 3, 2020 at 2:25 a.m., the Arlington Police Department responded to a major crash involving a single vehicle with a lone occupant in the 1900 block of E. Arkansas Lane. Investigators believe the vehicle was traveling eastbound on Arkansas Lane when the vehicle crossed over the median and struck a light pole and a tree. The driver, a man in his 30's, was pronounced deceased at the scene. The vehicle also collided with a utility line resulting in a subsequent gas leak, causing officers to shut down Arkansas Lane between New York Avenue and Sherry Street for a period of time.

Investigators are still looking into the causes of the crash. It is believed that the driver may have lost control due to traveling at a high rate of speed. The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office will identify the deceased once next of kin have been identified.
