Kristian Alvarado Killed in Auto Accident on North Oak St in Arlington, TX

Arlington, TX — December 21, 2022, 29-year-old Kristian Alvarado died in a traffic accident on North Oak Street in Arlington.

Authorities say the incident happened shortly before 8:00 a.m. on the 400 block of North Oak at West North Street. Preliminary investigation suggests Alvarado was driving a Chevy Malibu south on Oak when he allegedly disregarded a stop at North Street. After entering the cross-street the Malibu was hit by a westbound Mercedes Metris van.

Alvarado died at the scene. The van driver was transported to an area hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

No further information is currently available.

I often caution people not to take preliminary news releases as the entire story of an accident. Some may think there's not much more to say if the victim ran a stop sign as reports allege, but what if that's not the whole story? What if his vehicle couldn't stop due to bad brakes, a blown tire, or even slick roads? What if something even more unusual was involved? I ran across a West Texas crash not long ago where someone was blamed for running a stop sign, only for it to later come out that road crews took the signs down that day. How can someone disregard a sign that isn't even there?

I'm not saying that very unusual circumstance happened in Arlington, nor am I claiming that things must be more complicated than a momentary but costly mistake. Could they be, though? Absolutely, and if so then it's important to find that out. A man lost his life and that's more than enough reason to investigate this matter fully. His loved ones deserve no less.
