FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – A Crowley woman is dead after she got out of the car she was riding in along the I-35W service road in Fort Worth early Sunday morning.
The woman, identified as 21-year-old Charayla McMillan, had stepped out of the passenger side of the Mercury Grand Marquis she was riding in because she was nauseous. That’s when she was hit by an oncoming pickup truck.
The truck, which did not stop, was described as an early 1990s model GM work truck with large tires, a tool box and shaded back window. It was last seen heading northbound of the I-35W service road.
McMillan was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. She leaves behind a 1-year-old daughter, as well as both her parents.
Sunday afternoon her father described her as a smart young lady with a big heart. “She always had a beautiful smile. You would never seen her sad.” Larry Livingston, her father, said. “She’d walk in the room and her smile would do it for her.”
Livingston says Fort Worth Police have not let the family see their daughter’s body yet. “They tell me it was a horrific scene.”
He also says McMillan’s daughter just turned one last week. “She’ll never get to know her mom. It’s heartbreaking.”
That leaves Livingston making a plea for justice. “Please, we beg of you. Let your heart be touched. Come forward, we need some type of closure.”
Anyone with information on the driver of the truck is asked to call Fort Worth Police at (817) 392-4884.
