Pedestrian Injured in Hit-and-Run on South Great Trinity Forest Way in Dallas, TX

Dallas, TX — December 23, 2022, a pedestrian was hit and seriously injured by a vehicle in a hit-and-run on South Great Trinity Forest Way in Dallas.

Authorities say the incident happened shortly before 10:30 p.m. on the 3100 block of Great Trinity Forest. Preliminary investigation suggests only that the victim was on foot in the area when they were hit by a vehicle believed to be a Ford sedan. After the impact the driver left the scene without stopping.

The pedestrian was transported to an area hospital for treatment of serious injuries.

Police are still investigating and searching for the hit-and-run vehicle, which they believe is a late '90s to early '00s gold Ford Taurus. Police mentioned the Ford had a Texas license plate but said its registration appeared to belong to another vehicle.

No further information is currently available.

It's always frustrating and disappointing to see another Texas hit-and-run in the news. There's no excuse for hitting someone and leaving them injured in the street, so it's important to find the Dallas runaway and see that they face consequences for their poor choices.

It's encouraging that police seem to know the make, model, and color of vehicle they're looking for, as well as a possible license plate number for it. That's far more than they often have to start with after these incidents, but if the car's registration actually belongs to another vehicle then tracing its paper trail may not be an option. Instead it may be a matter of someone spotting the vehicle around the community and calling a tip line. That's why it's important to share any new details or developments with the community so they can keep a sharp lookout.

Once the suspect is in custody hopefully investigators will find out what they could possibly have been thinking. They might simply have panicked, but in many cases something else (illegal drugs or guns, outstanding warrants, drunk driving) contributed to their flight. Only time and thorough investigation could say, but if everyone does their part I'm hopeful there will be useful answers soon.
