Grand Prairie Head-On Collision Caused by Wrong Way Driver Kills Two

A head-on collision in Grand Prairie that was caused by a wrong-way driver, left two people dead on Thursday morning on U.S. Highway 287, police said.

The driver of the vehicle that was traveling in the wrong direction on the highway was identified as 46-year-old John Layton, a resident of Mansfield. The driver of the vehicle, which was struck by Layton’s Kia, was identified as 20-year-old Alex Elizabeth Ford, a resident of Watauga.

Police said Ford was traveling on Highway 287 in a Honda CRV, when she was struck by Layton’s vehicle. Both of the vehicles were smashed into pieces upon impact, authorities said.

Police are still awaiting toxicology results to identify whether alcohol may have played a roll in the wrong-way head-on collision on U.S. 287.
