One Killed in Auto-Pedestrian Accident on Dyer Street in El Paso, TX
El Paso, TX — January 19, 2023, one person died in an early-morning auto-pedestrian accident along Dyer Street in El Paso.
The investigation is ongoing and police released few preliminary details, but they say the incident happened early Thursday morning on the 11000 block of Dyer. All they've said so far about the collision is that a pedestrian was hit by a vehicle in the area, after which one person was pronounced dead. Authorities also said someone was also transported to a hospital with serious injuries, but it's unclear if there was more than one victim.
No further information is currently available.
Clearly at this point there's no telling exactly what happened on Dyer Street, but I think most would agree that given the loss of someone's life it's important to find out—AND not to jump to any hasty conclusions before investigators can get more information. I've seen too many instances where "early morning" and "pedestrian" trigger some quick finger-pointing, but it's always best to withhold judgment and let only the facts ultimately do the talking. I have little doubt that the victim's loved ones have many urgent questions about how and why this happened; I just hope that what authorities find provides some satisfactory answers.
