GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) - The Grand Prairie Police Department is investigating a fatal traffic collision involving a female pedestrian on January 14 in the 2300 block of W. Main Street.

At 11 p.m., officers responded to a report of a vehicle crash and found the woman, who was struck by a vehicle in the roadway. She was pronounced deceased at the scene.
