Police Seek Help Identifying Deceased

Cockrell Hill Road and Danieldale Road in Duncanville. Officers contacted the driver of the involved vehicle who stopped as required by law. The driver indicated he struck a pedestrian whom he did not see who was walking in the middle of the service road. The pedestrian, an unidentified black female estimated to be in her thirties, was pronounced deceased by responding paramedics due to severe trauma from the accident.
