Man, 20, dies after crash in Lewisville

A 20-year-old man died Tuesday morning in Lewisville after he got in a car wreck, and while he was trying to push his car off the road, another vehicle hit him.

About 6 a.m., a car made a wide turn into traffic from South Valley Parkway onto the Hwy 121 Business access road, according to a Lewisville Police Department spokesman. That car caused a second vehicle to swerve to avoid hitting it, and it spun around and rolled backwards into the grassy median on South Valley Parkway. The first vehicle kept going and left the scene.

Amidst all of that confusion, a third vehicle somehow wrecked, and the disabled vehicle was blocking the main lanes of the access road, according to LPD. The driver, Jee Fong Her of Owasso, Oklahoma, got out of his vehicle and asked a Good Samaritan to help him push his vehicle out of the roadway. As they tried to push the vehicle, a fourth vehicle coming down the access road crashed into Her’s vehicle, killing him and injuring the Good Samaritan, whose injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

The driver of the fourth vehicle stayed at the scene and cooperated with investigators, according to LPD. He told police he didn’t see the stranded vehicle as he was changing lanes. No charges have been filed against him.
