Police: Drunk driver hits, kills man fueling truck

- Police say a man who was putting gas in his truck was killed by a suspected drunk driver overnight in Garland.

The crash happened around 1 a.m. Thursday eastbound on the George Bush Turnpike near Firewheel Parkway.

State troopers say Samuel Guzman was putting in gas in a truck that was disabled and parked on the right shoulder when a driver in a Cadillac MKS side-swiped the truck and hit him.

Guzman was rushed to Methodist Richardson Medical Center where he later died.  The driver of the Cadillac was not seriously injured.
