Despite a driver’s attempts to protect a pedestrian who was crossing a street off North Lamar Boulevard, the pedestrian was still hit by another car and later died from his injuries, police said.
David Hanner, 57, died Nov. 17 after he was hit on Nov. 6 around 8:30 p.m.
Hanner was crossing the street in the 800 block of Wagon Trail, very close to North Lamar Boulevard and a couple blocks south of Braker Lane, when he fell down in the street, police said. A passing vehicle stopped and tried to block Hanner from danger. However, another car saw the vehicle blocking the street and and drove around it, unknowingly running over Hanner.
Hanner was taken to University Medical Center Brackenridge, police said.
