Three people are dead after a car with two men inside traveled the wrong way on a Dallas freeway and slammed into a sport-utility vehicle, killing the men and the lone occupant of the SUV. Dallas police say they don't know how long the two men had been driving east in the westbound lanes of Interstate 20 near Polk Street on the southern edge of the city. However, investigators say they found evidence of alcohol in the men's car.

Killed in the SUV was 45-year-old Karla Rivers, who family say was heading home to Cedar Hill after getting off work as a dispatcher at Baylor University Medical Center. Killed in the other car in the predawn Friday crash were 29-year-old Ramiro Moreno of Dallas and a 21-year-old Edward Pierson of Richardson.
