This story has been updated to reflect lanes have reopened and include additional details on the victim.

One person was killed in a major crash early Wednesday that shut down all eastbound lanes of Interstate 20 for hours in Grand Prairie near the border with Arlington. 

Bradley Wright, 31, was crossing the highway around 3:20 a.m. when he was hit and killed by a vehicle. That vehicle was then hit by another motorist, according to Grand Prairie police. 

It's the 10th traffic fatality in Grand Prairie in 2019, police said. 

The closure began shortly before 4 a.m., according to a tweet from TxDOT Fort Worth. Lanes had been reopened by 7:15 a.m., according to Grand Prairie police.

The closure began at State Highway 360 — eastbound lanes had been diverted on to that roadway. 

Grand Prairie police did ask drivers to seek alternate routes for their Wednesday morning commutes. 

Drivers headed east from the Fort Worth area can take Interstate 30 eastbound, southeast Green Oaks Boulevard or Spur 303 to avoid this area altogether.
