An early morning high-speed crash in Dallas severed a man's arm and put another man behind bars. 

Police said the driver of a Honda, James Dunne, had been speeding so fast that he slammed a Yellow Checker airport van from behind. The van's driver, Matthew Leon, lost control and flipped the vehicle several times onto a nearby frontage road. 

Inside the airport shuttle van were passengers Kenneth and Carol Ann Dux. 70-year-old Kenneth Dux's arm was severed at the elbow. 

Paramedics found the man's limb and transported both to Parkland Hospital in Dallas so that surgeons could attempt to reattach the man's arm. 

Dunne was also taken to the hospital for a hand injury before being turned over to the Richardson Police Department. His blood was drawn at the hospital and police said he is facing charges for intoxication assault.
