A Dallas/Fort Worth woman has been arrested in connection to the death of a pedestrian and the serious injury of another due to a wreck Tuesday night.
Alicia Susanna Robles is accused of striking two men on the service road along U.S. Highway 75 just south of Wilmeth Road. Robles is charged with intoxication assault and intoxication manslaughter.
According to Mckinney police, the men were on foot, traveling south in the right lane of the service road after their truck had broken down. They are believed to have been hit by Robles’ vehicle around 8:45.
Sadly, a 32-year-old man was killed and the other man, 40-years-old, was transported by helicopter to Parkland Memorial Hospital. His status is currently unknown and the victims’ names have not been released.
