Auto Pedestrian Fatality

A 53-year-old man died after he was hit crossing Gulfway Drive in Port Arthur, a city spokesperson said Monday in a news release.

Daniel Jones, 53, died at St. Mary's Hospital after police say he was hit by a vehicle Friday evening.

Port Arthur PD officers were flagged down Friday about an auto-pedestrian crash in the 4400 block of Gulfway Drive around 6:12 p.m.

Police say the driver did not see Jones because of "low light and (Jones') dark clothing."

Port Arthur PD is investigating the crash.
