WATAUGA, TX (09/13/2015) — Birdville ISD student Devon Jesse was struck and killed by a car on Sunday.
Police have identified Devon Jesse as the 14-year-old boy who died following an auto-pedestrian accident on Sunday in Watauga, Texas.
According to reports, Jesse was crossing the 5900 block of Watauga Road (near Saramac Drive) when a female driver struck him just before 1:40 p.m. Jesse had a skateboard with him at the time, but it is unclear whether he was riding at the time of the accident.
Cody Ray, who was with Jesse when the accident occurred, stated that the woman did not stop initially and told him that she believed she had struck a dog. A local business owner/ witness was able to flag her down, and she returned to the scene.
A small memorial was built at the site on Monday for the Haltom High School freshman. A candlelight vigil is planned Tuesday night from 7:00-9:00 p.m. in front of Snoopy’s Dog House pet grooming shop, located at 6031 Watauga Road.
