Posted: Updated:

Drivers traveling on Highway 69 south of Bullard are encouraged to seek an alternate route after a fatal accident Friday evening.

Multiple agencies are on scene at a one-vehicle wreck on Highway 69 near the intersection of Farm to Market 2493. A vehicle hydroplaned, left the roadway and hit a tree. Northbound traffic is down to one lane at this time, but traffic is moving slowly.

The Department of Public Safety confirms that an adult female died in the crash. Two teenagers were taken to the hospital; one is in critical condition. No identities have been released at this time, pending notification of family.

Drivers in the area are encouraged to use a different route if possible. This accident is directly in front of K.E. Bushman's Winery.

The Texas Department of Public Safety, Bullard Police Department, Bullard Fire Department and Flint-Gresham Fire Department are on scene.
