FATALITY HIT AND RUN CRASH

On February 7, 2018 at approximately 4:40 p.m., Plano Police Officers responded to a report of a male subject laying in the roadway in the 6800 block of U.S. Highway 75, just south of Legacy Drive.

Upon officer’s arrival, they located a subject who appeared to have been hit by a vehicle.  It is believed the victim may have been a pedestrian walking along the shoulder of the highway.  The victim was transported by Plano Fire Rescue to a local area hospital where he later died from his injuries.

The victim was identified as John Curtis Shelby, a 36-year old white male.  He was wearing brown pants, blue striped button-down shirt and had a shaved head and a full beard.

Plano Police Traffic Investigators are seeking assistance from the public for anyone who may have witnessed this victim being struck by a vehicle and are asking them to call Crime Stoppers at 877-373-8477.  Tipsters can remain anonymous and are eligible for a reward of up to $5,000.
