Pedestrian Fatality

A man is dead after running from police officers Sunday night in Nacogdoches. The following morning highway crews were fixing road signs at the Loop 224 and  Douglass Road intersection where the accident happened last night. A police officer saw a pickup spin out and hit two road signs on the corner. As he approached to investigate everyone in the truck ran off. The driver ran up the embankment to the loop. That's where he was hit by an 18-wheeler. The dead man is identified as Bartolo Vasquez Leon, 32. Two passengers were in the car, but they were not hurt. No charges were filed.
