Irving, Texas. September 6, 2012 –
On September 2nd, just after midnight, officers responded to the 3700 block of Valley View Lane in reference to a pedestrian lying in the grass just off the roadway. When officers arrived, they located Timothy Niewolak, a 52 year-old Irving resident, lying approximately 15 feet off the roadway suffering from severe injuries. Based on the initial investigation, it appears as if Niewolak had been walking northbound in the 3700 block of Valley View Lane along the right side of the street, when he was struck from behind by a passing vehicle that did not stop. Niewolak was pronounced deceased at the scene.
Debris from the vehicle that hit Niewolak was located at the scene and determined to be from a Ford F-150 pick-up truck. The truck would have sustained damage to the passenger side headlight and rear-view mirror areas. No other descriptive information about the vehicle is known. Police are asking for businesses and/or individuals in the DFW area that provide vehicle repair to be alert and contact them if they have information that could help identify or locate the vehicle and operator.
Niewolak was last seen on Sept. 1, at approximately 11:00 p.m., in the area of SH 183 and Valley View. He was discovered the following morning by a passing motorist at about 12:22 a.m., lying next to the road.
Niewolak was on his way to work when he was hit.
Investigators are also looking for any witnesses who might have details about the incident and are asking that they contact the Irving Police Department at 972-721-2761.
