One man is dead after a crash on U.S. 287 Wednesday night, police said.
The wreck occurred before 9 p.m. Wednesday in the southbound lanes of the highway near Little Road.
The Tarrant County Medical Examiner's office identified Arlington resident Richard Spencer, 58, as the man killed at that location close to the time of the crash. His time of death was listed as 8:22 p.m.
Arlington police spokesman Christopher Cook said Spencer exited his car and was standing near his truck when he was struck by a second vehicle, which had veered outside of its lane.

Southbound U.S. 287 lanes from Interstate 20 were closed until just after 1 a.m. The southbound service road to 287 at Little Road was also temporarily closed.
Cook said alcohol is believed to be a factor with the driver of the second vehicle, but no arrests had been made as of Thursday afternoon.
