DALLAS – Dallas Police are seeking help from the public to find the drivers of two vehicles who may have been in the area of a hit-and-run accident that claimed the life of a 51-year-old man late Sunday night.
The wreck occurred just before 10pm on June 11, at the 9200 block of Lake June Road.
Police confirmed that James Stockton was the pedestrian killed by a hit-and-run motorist.
Stockton’s family is devastated.
“For someone who takes their own life and doesn’t even stay there to try, you know, help out or anything, and they’re gone,” said Stockton’s nephew, Jonathon Stockton.
Police are looking for the driver, or drivers, who fled.
“The whole family wants justice,” Jonathon added.
On Thursday, Dallas Police released a surveillance image of two trucks driving on Lake June Road around the time of the crash.
Police are working to identify and talk to both drivers.
FOX 4 has obtained additional surveillance footage that appears to show the two trucks speeding side by side.
Stockton’s body was found about a block away from camera view. Police said he was not using a crosswalk as he crossed the street.
“But they didn’t stop. They just left it there,” said Stockton’s sister Pamela Chavez.
Stockton’s sister said he died on his birthday. He lived with her within walking distance of the crash site.
“He would have gone up that way and gone to Popeyes,” Jonathon said.
The family said they saw him earlier that day. They worried when he didn’t come home and wondered when he would return.
“Now we know it’s not, so we just want answers. That’s all we want is answers,” Stockton’s nephew added.
