Donald Dares Killed on MoPac Expressway by Hit-and-Run Accident in Austin, Texas
Austin, TX -- A man was killed in Central Austin this past weekend after a suspected hit-and-run accident on the MoPac Expressway near Zilker Park. Police said that Donald Dares, 52, was killed at about 7:00 a.m. on Saturday (April 26, 2014) after he was apparently struck by a car that was headed along MoPac.
Dares was found deceased at the scene and police said they were only able to find an Easter-themed antenna topper: a toy shaped like an Easter bunny's ears. The car hasn't been located yet, but police are looking for a vehicle with right-front side damage and also damage to the side window.
Scene of the Accident
Hit-and-run accidents are a difficult thing to deal with because there just aren't a lot of details to work with. A lot of the cases we handle end up requiring a separate investigation simply because the police investigation didn't provide the right details or was taking too long. Most people, I'm willing to bet, want answers about what happened to their loved ones sooner rather than later.
I don't know about what happened here, so I'm not suggesting that anyone should hire a private investigator or anything. I just want to point out that the police investigation here isn't going to be the gospel truth. It's always helpful, but it's not going to be completely accurate.
