Tips from citizens helped in identifying the driver in this incident. The Lewisville Police Departments thanks the public for their assistance.
On Sunday, October 02, 2016, at approximately 8:40 pm, a 45-year-old male pedestrian was struck in the right southbound lane of 1600 S SH121 Business in Lewisville. Witness statements and video surveillance from surrounding businesses confirms the suspect vehicle as a two tone, red over tan or gray, 2004 – 2008 Ford F-150 crew cab pickup truck with tinted windows. The truck stopped for about 10 seconds, then fled the scene turning right onto westbound E Southwest Parkway.

Minneapolis city and law enforcement leaders announced plans on Monday to add more police officers and expand the city’s youth intervention program, in an effort to reach the relatively small percentage of young people they say are responsible for the majority of the violence.
The announcement came a few hours after a pair of early-morning shootings Monday in the downtown Minneapolis Warehouse District that police say left six people wounded.
The shootings occurred between about 1:13 and 1:30 a.m., police said.
“Gun violence anywhere in this city is unacceptable and I am sick of it,” Mayor Betsy Hodges said at an afternoon news conference at First Precinct headquarters downtown. She said that if passed, her 2017 budget would increase the department’s authorized strength by 15 officers next year…
… “Investigators believe that both shootings are gang-related,” Michal said. “Officers continue to look at footage from cameras in the area to try to determine who else is involved. They will also be canvassing in the area in the coming days talking with business owners.”
