Fatal Automobile Accident

An 18-year-old woman has died as the result of injuries sustained in an car-vs-pedestrian accident Sunday morning, which occurred in the 2000 block of South Cooper Street in Arlington, Texas.

Investigators say that 18-year-old Jordan Coleman (of Arlington) was walking on the east sidewalk along Cooper Street when a red 2006 Honda Pilot heading north on Cooper left the roadway for unknown reasons, traveled onto a sidewalk, and struck Coleman at about 11:30 a.m. Sunday. The Tarrant County medical examiner’s office listed Coleman’s address as being mere blocks from where the auto-pedestrian accident occurred.

According to police, Jordan Coleman was transported to Medical City Arlington hospital where she unfortunately succumbed to her injuries at about 3:30 p.m. The driver of the SUV, identified as 21-year-old Hashem Mohammad Mahdi Tafesh, was reportedly uninjured. Detectives are still looking into the circumstances and cause of the crash.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit dated February 13th, Arlington Police have charged Tafesh with manslaughter.
