The driver of a car that crashed into a Fort Worth home Friday afternoon after police say he was fleeing an accident scene has been identified. The Tarrant County Medical Examiner says the dead man is 39-year-old Gaylon Moore. A 6-year-old boy in the car with him at the time of the fatal crash was secured in a child safety seat and did not suffer serious injuries.
Moore was reportedly traveling northbound at a fast speed on Southwest Boulevard after just having been involved in a crash on the bridge over W. Vickery Boulevard.
Police say that as the driver was fleeing the first scene, he drove across the grassy median that separates the main lanes from a service road. There, he struck a fire hydrant, lost control and crossed into the 6900 block of Culver Avenue as his vehicle rolled over into a house and struck a parked car in the home's driveway.
The home's garage was destroyed in the crash.
The home's owner, Leslie Brammer, felt the impact, and says the black station wagon was mangled and upside down in her garage.
She saw the boy in his car seat and tried to comfort him.
She says that after the crash, she hopes insurance will help with repair costs soon since winter is approaching.
