Wrong-Way Driver Kills Fort Worth Woman
FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – A Fort Worth woman was struck and killed by a wrong-way driver on U.S. Highway 287 Monday night.
Terry Debo’s family wants to know if the other driver had been drinking.
Police say Debo, 46, was killed when the pickup truck driven by 61-year-old Michael Hairston slammed into her car, head on, after going south in the northbound lanes of traffic.
“She was my best friend,” says Stacey Simmons, Debo’s daughter.
Hairston also died in the crash, which happened near the Blue Mound Road exit.
Debo’s family plans to ask the Texas Department of Transportation about installing street lights on that section of the highway.
They say they will also ask TxDOT for permission to place a commemorative plaque on the roadside where Debo died.
