A woman told police just after 7 p.m., she had a green light when she drove through the intersection of 1900 Moody Street and 2500 Harry Hines Boulevard and collided with a black Nissan Maxima.

The woman told police, after the crash, the Maxima kept traveling and hit a man and woman standing on a nearby sidewalk.

Both were taken to Baylor Hospital where the man, 26-year-old Cedric "CJ" Davis, of Arlington, died from his injuries on Friday night.

The woman, 26-year-old Lauren Davis, was in critical condition but died from her injuries Saturday morning.

The couple was married for a year and a half. Lauren surprised her husband with tickets to see the Dallas Mavericks play for his birthday. They were walking towards the American Airlines Center when they were struck.

Their families told NBC DFW Lauren graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington and CJ was a current student at the university. The couple was very active in their church, frequently going on mission trips.

Dallas police said the driver of the Maxima, Kevin Christman, 28, was found to be intoxicated and was arrested.

Christman bonded out of Dallas County Jail early Monday morning. He faces two charges of intoxication manslaughter with a vehicle. 

No information on a lawyer for Christman was immediately available.
