NORTH RICHLAND HILLS (CBSDFW.COM) - Three people were hurt, two seriously, after a car flew off the Airport Freeway in North Richland Hills early Wednesday morning, landing in the parking lot of a hotel along the service road.
The 26-year-old male driver of the Infinity G-35 was not seriously hurt, but was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving. Two female passengers were ejected during the crash and taken to Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital in Fort Worth via air ambulance, both with serious injuries. Their current conditions are not known.
“It was like an explosion, a loud boom,” said Lucas Armstrong, the night manager at the Best Western Hotel where the car landed.
The westbound lanes of the Airport Freeway and the adjacent service road were shut down in Hurst for several hours as police investigated the crash, said North Richland Hills police investigator Keith Bauman. The highway has since re-opened to traffic.
The names of those involved have not been released.
