On Sunday, August 7, 2022, at 8:42 a.m., the Arlington Police Department responded to an assist traffic call in the 6300 block of W. I-20 Freeway. When officers arrived, they found that an auto-pedestrian accident had occurred.

The results of the investigation show that a woman attempted to cross I-20 on foot and was struck by a vehicle. The woman was pronounced deceased at the scene. It also appears that multiple vehicles subsequently struck the victim’s remains that were in the roadway.

Due to the thorough investigation that was required, all of westbound I-20 traffic was diverted onto southbound US 287 Highway for approximately three hours.

The driver who initially struck the pedestrian did not stop and render aid, or report the crash, so APD is working the incident as a Hit and Run offense at this time.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crash Investigator Towns at 817.575.8603. Tipsters can also remain anonymous by contacting Tarrant County Crime Stoppers at 817.469.TIPS.

The deceased will be identified by the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office once next of kin have been notified.
