Woman on Bike Killed in Hit-and-Run on Great Trinity Forest Way in Dallas, TX

Dallas, TX — September 3, 2022, a woman on a bicycle was struck and killed in an alleged hit-and-run on Great Trinity Forest Way in southeast Dallas.

Authorities say the incident happened around 2:00 a.m. on the 7700 block of Great Trinity Forest near Hillburn Drive. Preliminary investigation suggests the victim was riding a bicycle across the road in the area, outside of a crosswalk, when she was hit by an eastbound Chevrolet Silverado.

After the impact two men reportedly exited the pickup and fled the scene on foot.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

The investigation is ongoing. No further information is currently available.

Commentary on Dallas Hit-and-Run on Great Trinity Forest Way

Reports say the pickup's occupants ran from the scene, but that means police have their truck. That's usually a good start toward finding suspects, as they can often follow the paper trail back to its owner. Sometimes the registrant is the suspect and if not they often know where to find them.

Once police track down the suspect they can hopefully learn why he and his passenger took off after fatally harming someone. Sometimes people just panic in a stressful situation, but other times they run to hide something from law enforcement--illegal contraband like guns or drugs, active arrest warrants, or something else they think will land them in even hotter water.

Many times the driver is intoxicated and in their compromised state they believe running away is their best option. If police learn the Dallas suspect was drunk at the time, the source of his alcohol should also be identified in case a local business violated dram shop law. In that case the business might have a legal duty to make what amends it could to the victim's loved ones.

Before anyone can really know the specific reason the driver fled, though, police have to catch him. With the vehicle in their possession, hopefully it's just a matter of time before someone reaches out to a tip line OR authorities manage to trace the truck to the suspect. It may take a little time, but I remain confident that if everyone cooperates that justice will be done.
