Three killed in multi-car accident on U.S. Highway 380

Three people are dead after a multi-car accident on Highway 380. The accident took place at around 4:35 p.m. Thursday afternoon on the overpass between Preston Road and Dallas North Tollway.

A gold passenger car was headed eastbound on Highway 380 when its driver lost control of the vehicle. The car then spun into oncoming traffic. Two vehicles headed westbound on 380 crashed into the gold passenger car.

The gold car was carrying three passengers. Two of the passengers were killed instantly, 92-year-old Katherine Nelson and 62-year-old Richard Wilbourn. The driver of the car, 66-year-old Patricia Wilbourn, was seriously injured and later died at a hospital.

Three people from the other two vehicles involved in the accident were transported to area hospitals for non-life threatening injuries.

Investigators believe inclement weather and icy road conditions are to blame. No charges will be filed.

Highway 380 remained closed for several hours following the accident.
