A 78-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene of an accident Sunday morning at Walmart.
Stephenville police were called to Walmart about 10:15 a.m. in response to a minor accident involving a Prius and Dodge pickup.
“Upon arrival officers discovered that a 2013 white Toyota Prius had come to rest against an unoccupied gray 2015 Dodge pickup after striking a curb while entering the property,” states a press release from SPD. “Stephenville Fire Department personnel were called to the scene because the driver of the Toyota was unresponsive. Erath County Justice of the Peace Precinct 2 Judge Bart Greenway responded to the scene and pronounced the driver of the Prius, a 78-year-old white male, deceased.”
A preliminary investigation has led officers to believe that the driver of the Toyota suffered a medical incident prior to the crash.
The accident is still under investigation. The name of the deceased has not been released pending notification of the family.
