Police have launched an investigation into a Texas pedestrian accident after a man was found dead in a ditch next to a road in south Fort Worth on Monday.
According to the Star-Telegram, Fort Worth police were called on Monday at 6:30 p.m. by a woman who said that she struck an object with her side-view mirror. Officers soon found a body in a ditch on the side of the road that was taken to the Tarrant County medical examiner’s office.
The victim, who was pronounced dead at the scene of the auto-pedestrian accident, was identified as 60-year-old Floyd Jones. The man was walking on Garden Acres Drive near the intersection of Deer Creek Drive at the time of the collision.
The woman who is believed to have struck Jones told authorities that she slowed down to drive over a speed bump on the road when she “saw a flash of red” and then hit an object with her side mirror. It is not clear if she received any traffic citations, but police say that no criminal charges are pending against the driver.
