A 64-year-old Weatherford man died Monday after he was hit by a vehicle earlier this month, police said.
Gary Hardin was driving at about 1:20 p.m. March 12 in the 1300 block of South Main Street when one of his grandchildren in the back seat dropped a sippy cup outside of the vehicle. Hardin pulled into a parking lot and walked around the vehicle to pick up the cup, said Sgt. Jason Hayes, Weatherford police spokesman.
A driver turning on South Main Street did not see Hardin and struck him, Hayes said. The driver stayed to assist Hardin.
Hardin was taken to Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth, where he died at 10:51 a.m. Monday, according to the Tarrant County medical examiner’s office.
A GoFundMe page was created to help the family with funeral expenses.
