An 18-year-old woman was killed after being hit by a vehicle while walking on a sidewalk along Cooper Street in Arlington on Sunday morning, according to the Arlington Police Department.

The woman, who was identified as Jordan Coleman by the Tarrant County medical examiner’s office, was hit in the 2000 block of South Cooper Street just before 11:30 a.m.

The driver was heading northbound on Cooper Street and “for an unknown reason, the vehicle left the roadway and drove onto the east sidewalk parallel to the lanes where a pedestrian was walking,” a news release said.

The driver, who was not identified and was not injured, is cooperating with investigators, police said.

Hurst city officials rejected a citizen's request for a stop sign at Norwood Drive and Bedford Court, but may review the case after the body of a man apparently hit by a car was found at the intersection.
