Two killed in wrong-way crash in Rowlett

Two males were killed in an accident involving a driver who was going the wrong way.

It happened just before 11:00 Saturday night on the frontage road along the George Bush Turnpike in Rowlett, police said.

The driver of an SUV was heading the wrong way as he got onto the turnpike at I-30. That driver hit a motorcyclist head-on and dragged the rider onto the frontage road, police said.

The motorcyclist died. The SUV then burst into flames. A passenger managed to get of the SUV, but the driver was trapped and died before he could be rescued.

Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the crash, police said.
