One person was killed in an Arlington accident caused by a drunk driver, police said


One person was killed Monday morning in a three-car crash in Arlington, according to police.

Officers were dispatched to the 3900 block of West Division Street around 9 a.m., where a 2011 Chevrolet Silverado, a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado, and a 2012 Toyota Camry were involved in the crash.

The 2011 Silverado was traveling westbound when the driver crossed into the eastbound lanes of traffic, police said. She collided with a 2001 Silverado, causing items from the 2011 truck to fly and crash into the Camry.

The driver of the 2001 Silverado was pronounced dead at the scene, according to a police news release. No one in the Camry was injured.

The driver of the 2011 Silverado, 44-year-old Guerrero Madrid Salgado, was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. According to the release, investigators believe Salgado was intoxicated at the time of the accident. When doctors cleared him, Arlington police said they would arrest him and book him into city jail on one count of intoxication manslaughter and one count of possession of a controlled substance.

The person killed will be publicly identified after the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office notifies their next of kin.
