Man struck twice running through traffic on 121, dies

GRAPEVINE -- An unidentified Hispanic man died Thursday while he was running through traffic and dodging vehicles on Texas 121.

Police said they received several 911 calls about the man from motorists after they avoided striking the victim with their vehicles. A woman driving a 2008 Lincoln MXZ initially hit the man on the Texas 121 exit ramp to Hall-Johnson Road. The victim got up from that collision and continued to run towards Texas 121, according to Grapevine Police Sgt. Kim Smith.

When the man entered the southbound lanes of Texas 121, he was struck a second time by a 2003 Dodge truck. The victim was thrown into the grassy median to the west of the highway, where he was pronounced dead about noon, police said.

Police are awaiting word on the victim's identity from officials with the Tarrant County medical examiner's office.
