Police believe a red truck attempted to drive around another vehicle as the lanes expanded from two to three lanes at FM 156 and Hwy 114, and the truck collided with a gray vehicle, according to a Fort Worth Police Department spokesman. The driver of the gray vehicle — Evan Kriese, 19 — was pronounced dead at the scene around 9:30 p.m., according to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s office.
Kriese — a 2019 graduate of Northwest High School — is believed to have been leaving the NHS graduation commencement ceremony at Texas Motor Speedway.
“Northwest ISD is deeply saddened to learn about the passing of a former student who graduated from Northwest High School in 2019,” said a statement from a NISD spokesman. “Our thoughts go out to his family and friends during this difficult time.”
