Police indicated that Goodrich was the driver of a car that slammed into another vehicle that had already crashed early Tuesday morning. His car was traveling at an estimated 110 mph at the time of incident.
Two motorists were killed instantly as they were trying to help rescue a man who was trapped inside the burning vehicle. The driver of the burning car escaped with only minor injuries.
Goodrich was booked at a Dallas County jail, on two manslaughter charges, and he was released about 2 a.m. when he posted $50,000 in bail.
The Dallas Morning News reported Goodrich was questioned at his attorney's office Tuesday afternoon and then provided a written statement to police.
Police said the driver of the speeding tried to swerve between the disabled vehicles. Police said there were no skid marks to indicate the car's speed or show that the driver tried to stop.
Goodrich was the Cowboys' top selection in the 2000 draft, taken out of Tennessee in the second round. He missed the entire 2001 season after tearing his right Achilles' tendon during training camp and has been largely ineffective in limited playing time.
