Posted on May 07, 2011
A Dallas car accident involving a single vehicle leaves a man injured and his wife charged with driving under the influence. The incident took place at approximately 5:00 on Tuesday evening, May 4, 2011, on Northwest Highway at the intersection of Ferndale Road.
According to Dallas police, the incident occurred when Mary Jane Lane, 50, of Balch Springs, passed out at a red light. Her husband, Randal Lane, then got out of the car to try to awaken and unbuckle her. She then stepped on the gas, dragging her husband down the road.
Mr. Lane sustained two broken legs and an injury to his head as a result of the accident. His condition was not immediately made known.
Mrs. Lane was later found a couple of miles away from the scene of the accident, blocking traffic with her engine turned off. Police say that she had blood shot eyes, slurred speech, and unsteady balance when they found her.
The Dallas car accident is still under investigation by local authorities. Mrs. Lane is being held on $20,000 bail on driving under the influence charges.
This is an unfortunate incident, and we would like to wish the victim a speedy recovery during this difficult time.
