Pedes­trian struck by 2 ve­hi­cles on Cen­tral dies

The Dallas Morning News - - North Texas - Eline de Bruijn

A 25-year-old was fa­tally struck by two ve­hi­cles Fri­day morn­ing on north­bound Cen­tral Ex­press­way near Royal Lane.

The man ran across to the cen­ter me­dian just af­ter mid­night Thurs­day in the 11300 block of North Cen­tral Ex­press­way. He then turned around and was run­ning back across the free­way when he was struck by a Chevro­let van, po­lice said.

He was later struck by a sec­ond ve­hi­cle and died at the scene, po­lice said. The vic­tim’s iden­tity has not been re­leased.

The white van that first struck the man pulled over but the sec­ond ve­hi­cle did not.

A wit­ness told po­lice the man was in­volved in a dis­tur­bance with other peo­ple and he ran across the free­way to flee, but the un­known as­sailants stopped chas­ing him be­fore he got to the free­way, po­lice said.

Dal­las po­lice closed the ex­press­way tem­po­rar­ily.
