Saginaw man dies from accident injuries

FORT WORTH -- A Saginaw man died Tuesday from injuries that he received a week earlier when his car rolled back onto him on Interstate 30, according to reports.

James Smart, 29, was identified by the Tarrant County medical examiner's office.

He died at Harris Methodist Fort Worth Hospital where he was taken following the accident on I-30 near downtown Fort Worth, the medical examiner reported.

The accident was reported at about 2 a.m. May 20, said Sgt, Rodney Bangs, supervisor of the Traffic Investigation Unit.

"He was outside his vehicle which apparently had broken down on the shoulder exit ramp to Cherry Street," Bangs said. "Apparently, as he was pushing his car (a 1991 Chevrolet), it rolled back and pinned him between guardrail and vehicle."

Smart was taken to the hospital by a MedStar ambulance, a dispatcher for the agency said.

He died there 8:34 p.m. Tuesday, the medical examiner reported.
