DENTON, Texas — An overnight crash on a Denton freeway was fatal for the driver of a car.

Witnesses said the victim, who was identified as 20-year-old Carson Blakeney of Denton, had been driving erratically, speeding, and weaving in and out of the southbound lanes of Interstate 35E in the minutes before the crash around midnight Friday.

Blakeney's vehicle then clipped a truck and flipped over near the State School Road exit, a short distance from Denton Regional Medical Center.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

No one else was hurt.
