A woman was struck and killed early Thursday morning by a pickup truck that was jacked up so high, the driver says he never saw his victim.
The accident happened around 2:15 a.m. in the parking lot of Spearmint Rhino Gentleman's Club on Composite Drive near Walnut Hill in Dallas.
Police say earlier in the evening, 27-year-old Eric Crutchfield had backed his silver four-door Ford F-250 truck into a parking space on the south side of the club. As he was leaving, he slowly began to pull forward out of his parking space.
Witnesses say the victim, 23-year-old Kasey McKenzie of Granbury, was walking through the parking lot and had just stepped in front of Crutchfield's truck as he put it in gear.
According to the police report, two of the Ford's giant tires, which appear to be at least three feet tall, rolled over McKenzie. However, Crutchfield told police he didn't realize anything had happened until other people stopped him in the parking lot.
Officers arrested Crutchfield on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, and discovered he has a suspended license. He is now charged with intoxication manslaughter.
He also has two previous arrests in Dallas County on controlled substance charges.
McKenzie's Facebook page says she is a 2006 graduate of Granbury High School and a 2010 graduate of University of North Texas.
Friends and family members say she was not an employee of the club.
