A Hurst man died Sunday afternoon from injuries he suffered in a wreck on Loop 820 and another person was killed in a separate crash on 28th Street, police said.

The Tarrant County medical examiner’s officials identified the Hurst man as Joshua Kent, 25. He was pronounced dead at 3:06 p.m. Sunday at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth.

The crash was reported Sunday afternoon in the 2200 block of East Loop 820 in east Fort Worth.
