Scene of the accident where Makaye was hit

Henry Makaye, 49, was trying to cross South Cooper, near Lovers Lane, shortly after dark on Thursday night, when he was run over by two cars.

Arlington officials describe Cooper Street as a wide and sometimes dangerous road.

“It’s basically a highway… in essence,” said Arlington Police Department Spokesperson Tiara Richard. “It’s got multiple lanes, at least six lanes each direction, north and southbound, so that’s a lot of street to cross for someone to do on foot.

According to Richard, Makaye did not use the crosswalk.

“He was struck by one vehicle and then subsequently struck by a second vehicle that just wasn’t able to avoid the man that was in the roadway,” she said.

Police say both drivers stopped after hitting the man and are cooperating with the investigation. Richard said, “We don’t expect charges to be filed against them.”

This marks the fourth traffic death in Arlington this year.
