A 70-year-old Fort Worth man died several days after he was involved in a four-vehicle crash on a Fort Worth freeway, according to officials.
Charles Hodges was traveling in the 500 block of North East Loop 820 about 4 p.m. on April 12 when the vehicles ahead of him stopped because of heavy traffic and Hodges collided with the one in front of him, according to the Fort Worth Police Department accident report.
The vehicle Hodges hit then struck the one in front of it, and that one hit the vehicle in front of it, according to the police report. Hodges’ vehicle veered to the right, off the freeway and came to a stop on the service road.
Hodges, who lived near Arlington Heights High School, died at the hospital on Monday, according to the Tarrant County medical examiner.
It was initially reported that a police spokesman said Wednesday that the incident occurred April 4. However, the police accident report says the accident was on April 12, and a family member confirmed that date.
