A woman is dead after an early morning rollover crash in the 4300 block of Windhaven Parkway in Castle Hills Tuesday morning. The driver was Bailey Teel, 21, of Bethany Oklahoma.

First responders received a call at 3:27 a.m. from a passenger in the car who alerted them to the crash. According to LPD Captain Mike Lane, the passenger told police that as they were travelling in from The Colony, something ran out in front of the car.

Medics arrived to find the car flipped over and heavily damaged. They initially put PHI air rescue on standby, but then cancelled that. Lane said the driver had been partially ejected from the vehicle, suffering fatal injuries.

Lane said the crash was being investigated as a possible case of driving while intoxicated, based on factors present at the scene.

The passenger’s condition was unknown.  The victim’s body was taken to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s office for autopsy.

We will update this story if we learn more details.
