The driver of the vehicle has been identified as 27-year-old Zackary Byram, of Grand Prairie – who was taken into custody. Byram was turned over to the custody of the Milford Police Department.
The Hill County Sheriff’s Office, Ellis County Sheriff’s Office, Texas DPS, Texas DPS Air Unit, Waxahachie PD and Milford PD all took part in this case.
