Rosita Ushanna Sherfield Killed in Hit-and-run Accident in Little Elm, TX
Denton County, TX — November 1, 2023, Rosita Ushanna Sherfield was killed due to an apparent hit-and-run accident at around 8:14 p.m. on East University Drive.
Authorities said in their statements that the collision took place just off the corner of U.S. 380/University and Navo Road, which is near Ray Braswell High School.
Exact circumstances surrounding the accident itself are not clear at this time. Reports currently say that 41-year-old Rosita Ushanna Sherfield died as the result of an accident involving at least two vehicles. Authorities released details about two suspect vehicles, a dark-colored SUV and a white Honda ("possibly a Civic," reports say). One or both vehicles may have damage to the front-end of the vehicle, according to police.
It's unfortunate to see so little information available about this tragic event, but I've seen authorities resolve hit-and-run investigations with less information. Simply knowing the possible types of vehicles and getting that information to the public can lead to local businesses, neighbors, police in surrounding jurisdictions, and other members of the community to come forward with useful information. I'm hopeful the public will stay vigilant and help get answers for this woman's loved ones.
