A 26-year-old Flower Mound man faces multiple criminal charges after he allegedly stabbed two people and strangled a third immediately after a car crash in Carrollton.

The crash involved at least three vehicles about 5 p.m. in the Express Lanes of I-35E, according to a news release from the Carrollton Police Department.

Witnesses told police that the suspect, Dillon Stoffregen, got out of his vehicle and started a verbal altercation before assaulting other drivers involved in the crash, as well as a passerby who stopped to intervene.

None of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening, according to police. Three assault victims were hospitalized, as was a fourth man who was injured in the initial crash.

Stoffregen was also injured during the assault, and was taken to jail after he was released from the hospital. He is facing three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Anyone who recorded either the crash or the assaults is asked to contact police at 972-466-3333 or [email protected]
