Series of Hit-and-Run Crashes Captured on Video in Fort Worth

The Fort Worth police DWI unit was investigating the incident

Fort Worth police say a hit-and-run driver captured on video crashing into several vehicles was likely under the influence of medication.

An NBC DFW viewer recorded shocking video showing a Ford SUV speeding down a busy residential street just east of Texas Christian University Thursday afternoon.

The video shows the Ford veering across a crosswalk on West Berry Street before colliding with a red pickup stopped on northbound Cleburne Road.

The SUV, with only three tires and a rim, backed up and headed south on Cleburne Road, towards Granbury Road. In the video, sparks and debris were seen flying off the vehicle as it swerved into a sidewalk and across two lanes.

The video ends after the SUV rear ended a Ford Focus sedan stopped at a red light.

Police said the driver was taking medication at the time. He was arrested and booked into the Tarrant County Jail.
