On Monday, July 22, 2019 at 2:46 a.m., Nolanville Police responded to a hit and run accident involving a pedestrian on East Veteran’s Memorial Boulevard, west of the Nola Ruth intersection. Upon arrival, officers found 36 year-old Dale Tatro, Jr. injured and lying in the roadway. Mr. Tatro, better known to his friends and family as “DJ”, was pronounced deceased at the scene.
Mr. Tatro was walking from a friend’s house to his home in Harker Heights when he was struck by a vehicle that left the scene without stopping. Based on the investigation, we believe a mid-1990’s model Chevrolet or GMC pick-up or Suburban style vehicle struck Mr. Tatro while he was walking on the shoulder of the roadway going toward Harker Heights. It appears the vehicle continued westbound on Veteran’s Memorial Boulevard and likely has damage on the front part of the truck.
