Fatality Accident FM 2818
On September 18, 2011 at 9:18 pm, the Bryan Police Department responded to the 800 block of N. Harvey Mitchell Parkway (FM 2818) near the intersection of Leonard Rd. for a major accident. The caller stated that a female pedestrian was struck by a truck in the roadway. Officers and medics arrived on scene to discover the pedestrian unresponsive. The Traffic Safety Unit and the Criminal Investigation Division responded to the accident to assist with the investigation. Justice of the Peace, JP Munoz, pronounced her deceased at the scene of the accident.
The preliminary investigation reveals that the pedestrian, later identified as Tiffany Dawson, a 33 year old female from Franklin Texas, was walking southbound, for unknown reasons, down the center turn lane of the multilane highway. A Ford F250 pickup truck was headed northbound in the inside lane of FM 2818. The female then stepped into the inside lane and was struck by the pickup truck. No one else was injured in the accident.
The driver of the pickup truck stayed at the scene and cooperated with police during the investigation. No charges have been filed at this time and the investigation is still active.
