Argument Results In Death By Vehicle
Police were called to a Highland Village parking lot sometime shortly after 7:45 p.m. last Wednesday, having received reports of some kind of vehicle accident according to WFAA.
When they arrived at the parking lot near the 1900 block of Justin Road, what they saw there would bring chills to even the most seasoned of officers.
A woman, 28 years old, had been run over. An ambulance was called, and the woman would be transported to a hospital in Lewisville, but she’d later be pronounced dead there, according to officials.
The Highland Village police were left to put together what had happened.
Apparently, this woman had been in an argument in that very same parking lot with a 22-year-old man named John Cree. The police were not sure if Cree and the woman had known each other prior to this argument.
At some point, Cree tried to drive away from the scene, but he ran over the woman instead, which eventually led to her death.
Cree was arrested at the scene. He now faces charges that include intoxication manslaughter and possession of a controlled substance.
In this case, one person’s public intoxication, especially behind the wheel of a vehicle, led to the death of one person. This could have easily turned out even worse if he’d been in an accident with one or more vehicles out on the road.
