One person has been left dead after a hit-and-run accident that happened on the LBJ freeway early Sunday morning.
According to the Garland Police Department, officers responded to a call at approximately 3:30 a.m. Sunday morning that someone had been run over in the 12500 block of East LBJ Freeway.
Officers arrived on the scene to find a person lying on the pavement in the middle of the highway. Police investigators determined that the victim had been the driver of a blue Honda and had been with another person who was a passenger in the vehicle.
Investigators indicated that the Honda had been traveling eastbound on LBJ freeway when the driver lost control of the vehicle and it struck a guardrail. It’s still unclear why the driver lost control of the vehicle.
The car was disabled with its rear end in the right lane of traffic. Police said a white Toyota traveling eastbound in the right lane struck the passenger side of the Honda.
The impact from the Toyota caused the Honda’s driver to be ejected from his vehicle. He landed in the main lanes of the traffic on the freeway.
Investigators say that the driver was struck by multiple other vehicles, all of which fled the scene.
The driver of the Honda was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. Their identity has been withheld pending notification of family.
The passenger was transported to an area hospital and is listed with non-life-threatening injuries.
