Investigators believe the driver suffered a medical episode. North Richland Hills resident Michael Dixon was rushed to Medical City North Hills where he was pronounced dead just before noon. It's not clear whether he died from the crash or the medical emergency.

Oncor spent the day making repairs and some power was restored by mid-afternoon. But Hurst police reported intermittent issues with telephones and Internet connectivity at the city's Animal Shelter, Service Center and the Parks and Fleet buildings.

Additionally, the Tarrant County Vaccine Clinic scheduled at Fire Station Number One was canceled.
