3rd man has died from Sunday night crashes on our roads!

Man, 84, fatally hurt while trying to push disabled car off highway

An elderly man who was hurt Sunday while trying to push his disabled car off of a highway, died early Tuesday at a Fort Worth hospital.

Allen Adkins, 84, of Fort Worth died at 1:50 a.m. Tuesday at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, according to the Tarrant County medical examiner’s office.

At about 9:15 p.m. Sunday, Adkins was trying to get his 1994 Ford two-door car off the roadway in the 2300 block of NE Loop 820, said Sgt. Rodney Bangs, supervisor of the traffic investigation unit.

Adkins, however, was “struck from behind” by a Toyota sports utility vehicle, Bangs said

Unfortunately, a second man crashed into in the earlier article also died.

I urge Fort Worth motorists to drive with utmost care.
