Pedestrian struck by 2 vehicles on Central dies
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.
