Lisa Diane Jordan Killed in Alleged Hit-and-run Accident in Dallas, TX
Dallas, TX — August 6, 2023, Lisa Diane Jordan was killed due to an alleged hit-and-run accident that happened at around 5:30 p.m. on S. Akard Street.
According to initial details about the crash released by officials, the collision occurred at the intersection of Akard Street and Commerce Street.
It appears that 57-year-old Lisa Jordan was walking at the time and attempted to cross, reportedly with a lit crossing signal. While doing so, authorities say an eastbound Ford Explorer failed to yield on a solid green left turn, hitting Jordan in the crosswalk.
As a result, Jordan succumbed to her injuries. The vehicle reportedly continued down Akard Street and did not stop and render aid. However, details suggest authorities identified the vehicle involved. Beyond this, however, there doesn't appear to be clear information on what all contributed to the crash.
It seems unlikely someone in a typical passenger vehicle wouldn't have realized they hit someone. I certainly can't say for sure what happened here, but people who leave the scene of an accident often do so to hide things like warrants, drunk driving, and drugs. Could it be something similar contributed to this accident?
