Dallas, TX (June 7, 2019) – Around 4:30 p.m. on June 6, police responded to the scene of a motor vehicle accident on Great Trinity Forest.

Reports from the incident show that 29-year-old Kendrick Edwards was driving a Ford Crown Victoria along the roadway when he engaged in a race along the westbound lanes. During the race, Edwards’s vehicle clipped another vehicle, which caused it to go into the path of a Dodge Charger, which was being driven by 23-year-old Jailon Murphy.

Both Murphy and Edwards were rushed to an area hospital for medical treatment. Both victims later succumbed to their injuries.

We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the families both Kendrick Edwards and Jailon Murphy.  Our thoughts are with them at this time.
