Legless hit-and-run victim found dead in suspect’s car

WHITE SETTLEMENT, TX – Nestor Luján Flores, a 31-year-old Texan, was found in a fast-food restaurant parking lot, inebriated and unconscious in his vehicle with a deceased individual in the passenger seat who was missing both legs. Authorities believe the victim to have been a pedestrian in a hit-and-run incident, which occurred Saturday night.

Around 11:15 PM, police discovered Flores passed out in his car at a Jack in the Box parking lot in White Settlement. His vehicle’s windshield was stunningly damaged, with a large hole present. Inside the car, sitting next to Flores, officers found the lifeless body of a 45-year-old man who was known to frequent the area near I-30 and Cockrell Road in Dallas County. The same area yielded the discovery of a pair of severed legs.

Police believe that Flores drove about 38 miles before stopping at the Jack in the Box between 8 and 9 PM. Restaurant workers alleged that Flores, who was notably bloodied, entered the restaurant requesting a phone charger. Only two hours later did officers receive calls about him.

White Settlement Police Chief Christopher Cook expressed regret that Flores failed to report the incident, attributing Flores’ misunderstanding of the situation to substantial impairment. Flores allegedly believed he had struck a deer and was awaiting his brother to provide transportation.

Flores now faces a charge of intoxication manslaughter as police await blood-alcohol test results. Last year, Flores was also convicted of drunk driving, when authorities pulled him over for over-speeding while he had consumed four glasses of wine. The identification of the deceased and cause of death are yet to be confirmed as police continue to locate the exact site of the incident.
