Police Searching For Hit And Run Driver On Cockerell Hill Road
It’s difficult to imagine that someone could hit another person with their vehicle and callously drive away without attempting to help that person or to call for help. There is little if anything anyone can do to comfort the grief or give some sense of justice until the person responsible is found.
The Dallas Police Department is still searching for the driver in a fatal hit-and-run crash that happened at the end of last month on Cockerell Hill Road. CBS Local in Dallas-Fort Worth, Channel 11, CBS reported on its website that the accident occurred on July 31st at approximately 6:30 a.m. as a pedestrian was crossing Cockerell Hill Road near the intersection of Cockerell and Davis Street.
