FORT WORTH -- A man has died after a hit-and-run crash in Fort Worth.

Around 6:30 p.m. Thursday, police were called to the intersection of John T. White and the Loop 820 service road. 

Officers determined that a back Lexus was heading east on the service road and approaching the intersection where the traffic lights were blinking red. A white pickup truck was heading north on John T White and going through the intersection.

Police say the Lexus went straight through the intersection, hitting the truck and pushing it into a pole. A woman in the Lexus was injured.

The driver of the pickup truck was taken to a local hospital where he later died.

The man driving the Lexus ran from the scene. No arrests have been made.

Police are investigating whether alcohol played a role in the fatal crash.
