A fatal accident that shut down traffic both ways on U.S. 90 on Monday night in Dayton may have been the result of a distracted driver, according to Dayton Police Sgt. Eric Ibarra.
At approximately 5 p.m., Dayton police responded to the call for a major accident in the 7900 block of US 90 near FM 1413 and Whispering Meadows Baptist Church.
