Our thoughts and prayers go out to Officer Arellano’s family and the Dallas Police Department.

Update: 10/14/2022 @ 10:38 AM

Dallas Police have charged Mayra Rebollar, 31, with Intoxication Manslaughter in connection with the fatal crash on Spur 408.

Rebollar is still hospitalized and has not been arraigned on the charge.

Original Post:

The Dallas Police Department wishes to express its deepest condolences to the family of Officer Jacob Arellano, #11729, who passed away this morning from injuries he suffered in a crash. On October 11, 2022, at around 11:48pm, Officer Arellano, traveling to work for the start of his shift, was driving northbound Spur 408 near Kiest Boulevard when the preliminary investigation determined his SUV was hit by a wrong way driver. Officer Arellano was driving in the middle of the three lanes when a sedan going southbound in the northbound lanes hit the off-duty officer’s vehicle head-on.

The crash caused the officer’s vehicle to go into the right lane where it was hit by a tractor trailer. The officer’s vehicle rolled several times and stopped on the right shoulder of Spur 408. The officer was taken to a local hospital in critical condition. The wrong way driver was taken to a local hospital in serious condition. At this time, the preliminary investigation has determined the wrong way driver may have been intoxicated. The crash investigation is ongoing.

Officer Arellano, 25, has been a member of the Dallas Police Department since June of 2019. He was assigned to Northwest Patrol Division, 1st watch. Funeral arrangements are pending. Officer Arellano is survived by his parents, girlfriend and infant child. Officer Arellano is also survived by his brother, also a Dallas Police Officer.

TRAFFIC ALERT: A reminder that starting TONIGHT (Friday, Sept 9) at 8:00pm, ALL lanes of Hwy 360 will be closed between Brown Blvd and Six Flags Drive for bridge construction as part of TxDOT's ongoing I-30 / 360 interchange project.

The closures will remain in effect through 5:00am Monday, Sept 12.

All southbound traffic will be detoured onto the Lamar Blvd / Ave J exit. All northbound traffic will be detoured onto the Six Flags Drive exit during that time.

Drivers should expect delays through the area.

We STRONGLY encourage fans coming to events in this weekend -- including the Cowboys home opener -- to give themselves extra time to get through the detours -- or to seek alternate routes (PGBT / Hwy 161 or Loop 820), especially if you'll be driving in from north of Arlington.

***Warrant Scam Alert***

Scams involving false warrants are on the rise.
The Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office wants you to know, we do not call citizens demanding they put money on Green Dot cards, gift cards or over-the-phone account transfers to pay outstanding fines or avoid arrest.

Individuals are calling victims in Tarrant County and telling them they have outstanding warrants, unpaid citations, or failure to report to court as a jury member or witness. This scam involves asking victims to stay on the phone while purchasing Green Dot cards, gift cards or using Zelle or Cashapp to pay the fraudulent fine or bond. They may be calling from numbers that appear to be legitimate.

Call your local police department if you think you’ve been the victim of a scam. If you live in the unincorporated areas of Tarrant County, you can contact us at 817-884-1213.
For more information and tips on detecting scams, visit the Attorney General’s Official Website or the U.S. Department of Treasury: https://www.texasattorneygeneral.gov/consume.../common-scams
