On May 28, 2013 truck driver Steven Cooper was killed after being forced off the road by another truck driver on Interstate 35 in Fort Worth.
Fort Worth police Spokesman Sgt. Kelly Peel told the Star-Telegraph that the driver of the other truck continued driving south and did not stop.
The incident occurred at approximately 8:00 a.m. near Heritage Trace Parkway in north Fort Worth.
According to the Star Telegram, “the driver swerved from the far right lane into the middle lane, colliding with the victim’s truck.”
After the truck was forced off the road, it rolled and landed on its side in a grassy area. The driver had to be extricated from the wreckage.
The truck driver who ran Cooper off of the road did not stop.
Sharron Neal Fort Worth police spokeswoman said that the two people who witnessed the crash said they were too focused on helping Cooper, so they didn’t focus on the other truck.
“We didn’t get a description or license plate number,” Neal said.
Today, the Fort Worth Police Department announced an award of $1,000 for information leading to an arrest of the hit and run driver.
Witnesses say the truck was white or gray.
