Crumpled car leaning against pole in major multi-vehicle accident in southeastern Dallas

Aerials over the scene showed several cars with heavy damage, including one that was overturned and suspended against a pole.

DALLAS — Emergency crews are working a major accident Thursday night in the southeastern part of Dallas that involved several cars and left multiple people pinned in the wreckage. A total of four people were transported to area hospitals.

A spokesperson for Dallas Fire-Rescue said crews were called to the intersection of Great Trinity Forest Way and South Buckner Boulevard - near the junction of Loop 12 and US 175 - around 5:30 p.m.

Aerials over the scene showed several cars with heavy damage, including one that was overturned and suspended against a pole. Traffic in one direction was also being diverted off the roadway into what appeared to be an adjacent parking lot. 

The department said one person had to be extricated from the overturned vehicle.

At this time, DFR said anywhere from three to six vehicles may have been involved, though aerials appeared to show a total of seven cars with damage.

DFR says multiple units, including five ambulances, were sent to the scene. 

In an update later in the evening, the department said two men and two women were taken to hospitals. Three of them were said to have non-life-threatening injuries, while the fourth was in unknown condition, according to DFR.

Officials have not outlined a possible cause for the wreck.
