A 50-year-old man identified in police reports as “N. Epsilon” was killed in a hit-and-run accident on Cedar Springs around 10:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 25. He is the second pedestrian to be killed in a hit-and-run accident on Cedar Springs this month.
Officer Laura Martin, LGBT liaison for the Dallas Police Department, said Epsilon was crossing Cedar Springs at the Knight Street intersection. She noted that the Knight Street intersection is offset, and that there is a marked crosswalk where Knight meets the southbound lane of Cedar Springs, but not one where Knight meets the northbound lane of Cedar Springs. Epsilon, Martin said, was crossing in the area where there is no marked crosswalk. (Martin said that original police reports that said Epsilon was crossing at the marked crosswalk were wrong and are being corrected.”
Epsilon was crossing from the west side of Cedar Springs to the east side when he was hit. He was taken by ambulance to Parkland Memorial Hospital where doctors pronounced him dead at 10:53 p.m.
Martin said Monday morning, Nov. 27, that police have gotten statements from witnesses who saw the accident, and that they have video of the accident obtained from a nearby business. She said police will be releasing that video to the press later today to ask for the public’s help in identifying the driver who struck and killed Epsilon.
Watch for updates and video when police release that information.
