Tedlon Cortez Killed in Pedestrian Accident in Fort Worth, TX
Fort Worth, TX -- November 5, 2022, Tedlon Cortez sustained fatal injuries due to an accident which occurred on Martin Street.
According to public information from authorities, the incident took place at around 7:00 p.m. off the corner of Martin Street and Nell Street. It appears 40-year-old Tedlon Cortez was walking across the roadway at the time when a vehicle struck him. That vehicle, which authorities did not describe, then left the scene. Cortez died as a result of the collision. Authorities did not release any additional details.
I can only hope that authorities worked or continue to work behind the scenes to get some answers here. It can be frustrating (to say the least) when police simply move on to other responsibilities, leaving the victims and families in these situations to fend for themselves.
But that's one of the reasons it's so important to keep details of hit-and-runs as public as possible. They often reach a conclusion because a vigilant member of the community connects the dots and identifies the driver or a piece of evidence leading to them. If those details still have yet to come to light here, then I'm hopeful that continued efforts from the community will lead to some answers.
