Up to $5,000 Reward - Preston Road Fatal Hit and Run

DALLAS, TX – Dallas Police are looking for the person that ran over a woman in a 7-Eleven parking lot on July 2, 2017. Authorities say a driver of an unknown vehicle struck Brenda McLemore in the convenience store parking lot at 15050 Preston Road around 5pm.

Surveillance footage shows that the car drove onto the 7-Eleven parking lot, at Preston and Belt Line Road, from an adjacent shopping center. The driver pulled up next to one of the pumps and sat for approximately five minutes, but never exited the vehicle.

Meanwhile, Ms. McLemore passed by the parked vehicle and walked into the store. Upon leaving the store, she walked by the same vehicle and crossed in front of the vehicle. The driver then pulled forward, bumped Ms. McLemore with the vehicle, knocking her to the ground. The driver then slowly ran over Ms. McLemore, trapping her beneath the vehicle and dragging her for 67 feet, before fleeing the scene through adjacent business parking lots.

Ms. McLemore died en route to the hospital.
