An officer with the railroad police stated that the male did not have permission to be picking up the spikes and that they would prosecute.

09/19 - Agency Assist - 1200 block of Kennedale Parkway: At 3:39 p.m. a Tarrant County deputy constable called Kennedale dispatch to request assistance with a suspect. The deputy believed that the suspect matched the description of someone he held a felony warrant on, and that the suspect had ran from Forest Hill officers two weeks earlier. While officers were responding to the request, the deputy radioed again and stated that the suspect had observed him and began running toward I-20. As the officers arrived the male had started across I-20 and they drove to the Forest Hill side of the freeway to stop him. The male saw the vehicles on the other side and ran back across the freeway toward Kennedale. One of the Kennedale units drove back around to the Kennedale side and stopped to get the male out of the freeway traffic. At this point the male ran back into the freeway again and was struck by an 18 wheel semi. A Kennedale officer, assisted by an off-duty ATF agent, was able to stop traffic from hitting the suspect further. He died at the scene. It was later determined that the suspect possibly ran because he was wanted for a parole revocation warrant out of the U.S. Marshals office.
