- Kelli Smith

A 43-year-old pedestrian died Sunday in Mesquite after he was struck by three cars, one of which then drove away, police said.

Thomas Dale was struck twice about 9:30 p.m. in the eastbound lanes of U.S. Highway 80 near Big Town Boulevard, police said. A 2017 Freightlin­er Box Truck and a 2019 Hyundai Accent struck Dale, who police said was already lying in the roadway.

Investigat­ors determined he had been struck earlier by an unknown car, which did not remain at the scene. The other two drivers stopped after their cars hit Dale.

“We are trying to locate the first vehicle that actually struck him,” police Lt. Stephen Biggs said.

Investigat­ors ask anyone with informatio­n to call 972-285-6636.
