On Monday April 10, 2017, at approximately 4:25 AM, officers were dispatched to the area of 7200 Rufe Snow Drive reference an auto-pedestrian accident.  Arriving officers observed a woman in the roadway with visible injuries.  The vehicle that had struck the woman was also on scene.  Medical personnel determined the female’s injuries required immediate transport via helicopter.

The evidence possibly suggests the woman entered the roadway when it was unsafe to do so and was struck by the vehicle. The investigation is still ongoing at this time, but there is nothing to suggest there will be any criminal charges related to the incident.

NEWS RELEASE                For Immediate Release

On Tuesday, March 21, 2017 at 1:12 pm, officers were dispatched to the east bound managed toll lanes of 820 at Rufe Snow Drive reference an auto-pedestrian accident. Upon arrival, officers located a deceased subject who had been struck by a four door sedan.

For a short period of time, both east bound managed toll lanes, and general lanes of Loop 820 were closed to secure the scene. During the course of the investigation, the managed toll lanes of east bound Loop 820 were closed until approximately 3:50 pm from Highway 35 to Precinct Line Rd.

Witnesses reported seeing a female climb over the side of the Rufe Snow Dr bridge and hang for a short period of time, before falling in to oncoming east bound traffic. At this point in the investigation, suicide is probable. Drug or alcohol impairment was not reported to be a factor with the driver of the sedan, and no charges are expected to be filed.

The victim is a 58 year old white female from North Richland Hills.
