ORIGINAL POST: At least one person was injured Sunday night, Sept. 12 in an accident in the 3900 block of Cedar Springs Road when a vehicle headed southeast toward the Cedar Springs/Oak Lawn intersection hit a pedestrian. Dallas Voice is waiting for details on the accident from Dallas Police.
Video of the scene of the accident, provided by Dallas Gay Nightlife, show a black sedan with a broken windshield and front-end damage sitting in the street as first responders with Dallas First and Rescue tend to the victim, putting a neck brace on them and laying them on a stretcher before carrying them to a waiting ambulance. The victim appears to be conscious and able to interact with those assisting them, at one point sitting up on their knees while talking to the DFR first responders.
We will update this post when information becomes available.
