Dallas, TX, /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- A woman died after attempting to cross a freeway and being struck by multiple vehicles. As reported by, the woman was hit several times including by a Fort Worth police car around 9:45 p.m. during the August 4 accident while trying to cross the South Freeway near Ripy Street. The woman died at the scene. 

Police say the woman is believed to have been deceased prior to being struck by the on-duty Fort Worth police officer's vehicle and several others that subsequently hit her. 

The Dallas car accident lawyers of 1-800-Car-Wreck say this incident is a powerful example of the dangers that await pedestrians who attempt to cross roadways in heavy traffic. Freeways are not safe areas to walk for pedestrians as there are no stop signs or crosswalks that would facilitate individuals being able to safely navigate these areas on foot. It is never a safe idea to attempt to cross a busy freeway, say the attorneys. 

For pedestrians who are injured in accidents caused by the negligence or misconduct of drivers, there may be valid grounds for them to file a personal injury claim for the recovery of medical expenses and other damages. Speaking with an attorney about one's legal options is often in the best interest of those involved in pedestrian accidents. 

The Dallas injury lawyers of 1-800-Car-Wreck are available to assist those with questions about legal matters related to pedestrian accident injury. Individuals can contact the law firm for more information regarding filing a pedestrian accident injury claim. The 1-800-Car-Wreck helpline is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for those who need help.
