DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – One man is dead after a hit-and-run accident that happened around 8:40 p.m. Saturday on E. Northwest Highway between Shady Brook Lane and Skillman Street.

Police are calling the incident a hit-and-run, and there is currently no word of an arrest or person of interest.

The killed pedestrian has not been identified by police, but is referred to as a 55-year-old Latino male on a police report.

Police say the 55-year-old man stepped off a median into the eastbound lanes of E. Northwest Highway, headed southbound.
