The Fort Worth Police Department is investigating a fatality accident that occurred overnight along Interstate 30 near Beach Street in east Fort Worth.
At around 2:00am, Fort Worth firefighters, police officers, and MedStar paramedics were called to a crash at I-30 and Beach Street. When emergency responders arrived, they found one person was deceased on the scene.
Traffic investigators believe a wrecked vehicle was stopped on the highway after a collision with an 18-wheeler. A passing driver got out of his vehicle and was rendering aid to the wrecked vehicle when he was struck by another vehicle. It is unclear if the driver stopped at the scene.
The man was pronounced deceased at the scene. He has been identified as a 27-year-old man from Arlington.
