Arlington law enforcement officers and other forensic authorities have been able to identify the deceased driver that was involved in a fiery crash on Interstate 30.
According to Star-telegram.com, the driver of the pickup truck, which scraped a concrete road divider and immediately went up in flames, was forty nine year old Michal Thornburg. Thornburg succumbed to injuries he sustained to his chest as a result of the blunt force impact of the crash. Medical Emergency Technicians who arrived on the scene of the crash pronounced him officially dead on the scene after checking his vitals. A post mortem conducted by a medical examiner revealed that Thornburg had taken a devastatingly deadly blow to the chest in the crash.
Driver in a rush
Witnesses who were also on Interstate 30 and saw the horrific crash unfold in front of their eyes, claimed that the white pickup truck attempted to exit the interstate at the last minute and ended up hitting the concrete divider and immediately catching fire. Another driver pulled over and ran over to the white pickup by foot to attempt to pry the driver out before he was burned to death but the flames were too huge and the man just could not get to the car. There is not much an Arlington TX truck accident lawyer can do in this case since this man did this to himself.
Police reports establish that the accident occurred at around five minutes to 6 pm on Monday in the westbound lanes of Interstate 30 in the proximity of Texas 360.
