Deadly collision occurred at Beckley Avenue, says police

DALLAS, TX, (February 11, 2024) – A recent graduate at Texas Tech University tragically lost her life in a hit-and-run collision that also left her friend with critical injuries, according to police.

Hit and Run posterSara House was killed following a hit-and-run crash that occurred on Feb. 11 at Beckley Avenue, where the Woodall Rogers Freeway ends in Dallas, police said.

Sara House, her college roommate, and three other friends were in a car waiting at a light on Feb. 11 when they were struck by a Ford pickup truck, whose driver did not stop at the scene. Police said the incident occurred at the stoplight at Beckley Avenue, where the Woodall Rogers Freeway ends.

House was killed in the crash, police said. Her friend remains in the ICU on a ventilator.

The truck driver was arrested on multiple charges, including manslaughter and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

An investigation is ongoing.


Failure to remain at the collision site can result in criminal charges, and the victim can also pursue a case against the driver. 

AAA said drivers could avoid hit-and-run crashes by being aware of their surroundings, yielding to crossing pedestrians even if they are not in designated crosswalks, and giving cyclists “plenty” of space when passing them on the road. 

“Having the proper resources is extremely important to investigate a pedestrian accident case and prove negligence,” said Candice Bond, an experienced hit-and-run accident attorney and a Managing Partner of Bond Legal. 

“Road conditions, signage visibility, and road lighting are all possible contributing factors that are considered and must thoroughly be examined. These procedures are necessary for helping those who have lost a loved one receive the justice that they deserve.”

Added Bond, the national analyst for The Legal Advocate, “The driver always must take great care behind the wheel.”


“It is almost always a driver’s duty to yield to any pedestrian,” said Stefano Formica, of counsel at Bond Legal. The family of Sara House may be entitled to a wrongful death claim. 

“Family members of wrongful death victims may seek damages for loss of income and companionship, pain and suffering, funeral expenses, and emotional distress following a tragic or catastrophic accident,” said Formica. 

Serving as an advocate, an attorney can help compassionately guide a family through this challenging time while protecting their rights. “Insurance companies often try to pressure victims to settle for a quick payout for far less than the case is worth,” Formica noted. 

“However, an attorney will vigorously advocate for their client to ensure that they are treated with respect and compensated fairly.”
