A toddler has been killed in a two-vehicle crash in Bedford over the weekend. Police report a pick-up slammed into the rear end of a car on Highway 121 near the Cheek Sparger exit. The back of the car was smashed in and two children were taken to the hospital. One of them -- a two-year-old named Avyanna Caro -- died at Baylor Scott & White in Grapevine. The condition of the other child has not been released. The driver of the pick-up was arrested but the specific charges have not been made public.
Police are still hunting for two hit-and-run drivers who left a man to die in Dallas over the weekend. Saturday morning, the victim was struck on Fort Worth Avenue near Westmoreland in North Oak Cliff. Police learned the man was walking along the side of the road when he was struck from behind and knocked into the center lane. No one got a description of that vehicle which just kept going west on Fort Worth Avenue. Then, while the victim was down in the middle lane, he was hit again -- this time by a red Chevy Cruze which also failed to stop. Dallas police and paramedics found the man already dead.
