Pedestrian Killed by Hit-and-Run Driver on Marsalis Ave in Dallas, TX

Dallas, TX — January 18, 2023, a pedestrian was struck and killed by a hit-and-run vehicle on Marsalis Avenue in Dallas.

Authorities say the incident happened around 3:35 a.m. in the area of 300 South Marsalis at the South R.L. Thornton Freeway service road. Preliminary investigation suggests a man pulled a black or dark-colored 2005-2010 GMC pickup truck out of a gas station parking lot but turned improperly. The pickup ran up a nearby sidewalk and hit the pedestrian, after which the driver fled the scene.

The victim was fatally injured in the collision.

Authorities are looking for more information about the truck and its driver and encourage anyone with helpful information to contact them or a tip line.

No further information is currently available.

It's always terrible and frustrating to learn of another hit-and-run on Texas roads, yet it seems every day more of them pop up. I'm not sure I'll ever really understand what might go through someone's mind that helps them justify leaving a person they injured behind, but there's certainly no valid excuse. That's why it's so important that authorities find and apprehend that driver so he can answer for what happened.

What police are doing now—searching for material evidence, asking for witnesses to contact them, examining video footage they got from the gas station, and looking for other sources of information—is crucial in finding every possible clue. Any new developments they can find and relay to the public are more pieces of the puzzle that someone will soon put together to recognize a suspect. It may take some time, but I'm hopeful that if everyone cooperates that the victim's loved ones will get at least some kind of closure.
