WACO, Texas – The Waco Police Department is investigating a severe traffic crash.

The incident happened at the corner of Dallas Street and Harlem Avenue. One car has flipped over.

Police have announced a 69-year-old woman has died. The driver of the car was her husband, who only sustained minor injuries but was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

The driver of the car was detained by Waco Police on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.

Police say speed may have played a factor in the crash as well. People from the nearby neighborhoods say the street is notorious for speeding.

“We do know that this person was travelling at a higher rate of speed than what is allowed on this road,” Waco Police officer Garen Bynum said. “Just based on what we’re seeing evidence-wise, speed may have played a factor in that.”

The police have not released the names of either person at this time.
