Fatality crash occurs on Coit Road
A Plano man died Tuesday when his car careened off the road and crashed into a brick wall.
James Houston, 22, was traveling southbound on Coit Road near Legacy Drive around 8 p.m. at a "high rate of speed" when his Mazda left the roadway and hit a brick wall dividing the roadway from a residential subdivision, said Officer David Tilley, Plano PD spokesman.
No skid marks from Houston's vehicle were found on the road near the scene. A report from the Dallas Morning News said the vehicle caught fire after vehicle struck the wall, though Tilley said that report has not yet been confirmed.
The traffic unit is still investigating the crash, Tilley said, and a report from the medical examiner regarding the death is forthcoming.
