Fort Worth police say a 17-year-old who stopped to help after a car accident on Interstate 35 was killed after being hit by a suspected drunk driver and then falling off the highway overpass.
Police say the teen - identified by the Tarrant County Medical Examiner as Joshua Kaluzniak of Grandview - was one of several passers-by who stopped to help early Sunday morning after an abandoned vehicle was struck by a Jeep.
Police say the teen was on the shoulder of the interstate trying to wave passing vehicles out of the way when a vehicle hit him. Kaluzniak then fell onto the street below the overpass.
The 43-year-old driver of the vehicle that hit him was arrested and booked into city jail on a charge of intoxication manslaughter.
