The Arlington Police Department has been notified that a pedestrian who was struck by a vehicle over the weekend has died from her injuries.

On Saturday, September 17, 2022, at approximately 11:58 p.m., officers responded to the 2200 block of New York Avenue to investigate an auto-pedestrian collision.

Investigators believe the pedestrian, a 42-year-old woman, was attempting to cross New York Avenue when she was struck by a Ford Expedition traveling southbound along the roadway. She was not using a designated crosswalk at the time.

The woman was transported to an area hospital in critical condition. Doctors pronounced her deceased on Sunday, September 18, 2022.

The driver of the Expedition remained on scene and was cooperative with investigators. She is not facing any criminal charges in connection to this incident.

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

The Arlington Police Department reminds the public that pedestrians should always use traffic lights and designated crosswalks when crossing roadways. Cutting across a roadway is dangerous at all times of the day, but particularly when it’s dark outside and visibility is reduced.
