Suspect Arrested In Connection With Hit-And-Run Death Of A Pedestrian
When police have cause to believe that an accident is a hit-and-run accident, they will take all efforts to find the culprit. This is especially true in a fatality case. The Dallas Morning News reported on just such an arrest.
On March 20, a man and his wife were walking on the edge of Johnson Road in the 1100 block. At around 6 p.m., a gray SUV hit the man fatally. The driver, instead of stopping as required by law, sped away, leaving the dying husband with his wife. The man was able to get to a hospital, but died soon afterward.
On April 25, the Keller Police Department announced that they had caught a suspect and charged him with accident involving death, which is a second-degree felony.
The report goes on to state that the road the couple was walking on had no sidewalk in that area, but that both people were walking on the grass when the crash happened.
Our sincere condolences go out to the family of the slain victim. If the arrested suspect named in the article is responsible, we hope that he’ll be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. We also hope that the family can receive compensation to help cover the financial burdens of losing a loved one.
