A female pedestrian died from the injuries she sustained in a deadly car accident on Hurst Highway, early Sunday morning.
Just after 1:00 a.m., local officers received a call reporting a collision at the 700 block of Northeast Loop 820 in Hurst. According to the report released by Tarrant County medical examiner officials, a woman was struck by a passing vehicle. The impact of the collision left the pedestrian, identified only as a Garland woman, with blunt force injuries. She was pronounced deceased and her death was an accident, as per the medical examiner’s ruling.
Authorities did not provide information about the vehicle involved and the driver of said car.
Further details surrounding the accident remain unclear at this time. Anyone who has information about the case should get in contact with the Hurst Police Department.
The crash is still under investigation.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of the deceased victim.
According to the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA), car accidents happen almost every minute of every day, and for every 16 minutes, a car accident occurs that results in death. That is roughly about 6 million car accidents every year and 90 people dying in car accidents every day in the U.S. alone. Driving while distracted, under the influence of alcohol, and at an unsafe speed are three most common causes of car accidents.
