A man and a woman were killed early Saturday in a hit-and-run.
Arlington police Sgt. Paul Rodriguez said the two were crossing West Division Street near Bowen Road at about 2:15 a.m. when they were struck by a vehicle. The driver fled the scene.
The pedestrians — who police believe were not using a crosswalk — were pronounced dead at the scene. Their identities have not been released.
Police are seeking the driver. Investigators didn’t have a description of the vehicle but said it should have front-end damage.

Arlington police Lt. Christopher Cook said the department got surveillance footage from a gas station but had not reviewed all of it. He added that it does not show the hit-and-run.
We’re going to really need the public’s help to solve this case.

“This is a tough case because normally you have some debris from the car, and we just did not have that,” Cook said. “We’re going to really need the public’s help to solve this case.”
