One person is dead after being struck by several vehicles on U.S. 287 early Thursday in Fort Worth, police said.

More than a dozen police units responded to the crash just after 6 a.m. at northbound U.S. 287 before the Berry Street exit. A male pedestrian was struck by the cars while trying to cross the highway, police said.

He was pronounced dead at the scene, said Matt Zavadksy, MedStar spokesman.

The victim’s identity will be released by the Tarrant County medical examiner’s office after the family has been notified.

The highway was shut down for more than two hours while police investigated.
