DPS Troopers and Dallas Fire-Rescue were called to the scene of a person struck by a vehicle on Thursday afternoon around 1:50PM in the lanes of Dallas North Tollway near Arapaho Road.

Social media video of the incident shows a man walking with the flow of traffic down Dallas North Tollway. He was walking along the white dashes between lanes. Traffic had slowed drastically while cars attempted to avoid him.

As he was walking, a slowing 18-wheeler attempted to pass him, but the man walked in front of the 18-wheeler and was overrun by the trailer.

Dallas Fire-Rescue firefighters were called to the scene to extricate the trapped man from underneath the semi.

He was transported to a local hospital, but pronounced deceased as a result of his injuries.

The identity has not been released.
