Man dies from injuries received in northeast Fort Worth wreck

The driver of the car involved in the fatal crash fled the scene and was still at large late Thursday night.

FORT WORTH Police are seeking the driver of a black Lexus who fled the scene of a fatal wreck in northeast Fort Worth Thursday night.

The accident occurred at about 6:30 p.m. when the Lexus, which failed to stop for a blinking red light, hit a white pickup at the intersection of John T. White Road and the service road for East Loop 820, said Sgt. Raymond Bush, police spokesman.

“The Lexus struck the truck at a high rate of speed, knocking it into a traffic light pole,” Bush said. “The driver of the Lexus, a male, fled the scene. The female passenger in the Lexus was transported to an area hospital.”

The man driving the truck was also transported from the scene to a local hospital, but he later died, Bush said. The name of the man killed was unavailable late Thursday.

“It is not known at this time whether or not alcohol was a factor in the accident,” he added. “This is an ongoing investigation.”
