Two men were killed Wednesday night in a crash that shut down Central Expressway overnight in downtown Dallas, police say.
According to police, the men were heading eastbound on Woodall Rodgers Freeway in a black Porsche 911 when at 8:44 p.m., the driver lost control on the ramp to northbound Central Expressway. The car sideswiped a Nissan Juke, also traveling on the northbound exit ramp, fell from the ramp and landed upside down on Central Expressway. The car then slid down the freeway before coming to a stop, police said.
Police said officers found the driver, a 34-year-old man from Plano, and the front passenger, a 42-year-old man from Rowlett, deceased inside the upturned vehicle. The identities of the deceased have not been released.
A 21-year-old woman driving the Nissan and a 3-month-old child in the back seat were both transported to hospitals with injuries not considered life-threatening, police said.
