Woman killed in crash near Arlington Entertainment District

A woman was killed in Arlington on Tuesday morning when she turned left out of a business parking lot and her car was hit by a box truck heading toward her, police said.

Heriberta Zavala, 27, of Dallas, died at 7:56 a.m., according to the Tarrant County medical examiner. Her cause of death hasn’t yet been officially determined.

The crash occurred about 7:45 a.m. Tuesday in the 1800 block of East Division Street near the Arlington Entertainment District, according to Lt. Christopher Cook, a police spokesman. An initial investigation revealed the woman was turning out of a business parking lot on East Division Street, trying to go eastbound, but was struck by a westbound box truck.

She was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

It’s unclear what factors might have led to the crash. Determining that can take weeks, Cook said.

The woman was the only occupant in her car. The occupants of the truck weren’t injured and are cooperating with the investigation, police said.

A few lanes of East Division Street were closed Tuesday morning as officers swept the scene.
