Man killed while walking home in Seagoville

A pedestrian who was walking home rather than driving due to the fact that he was too inebriated died after being hit by a vehicle on July 29 in Seagoville, Texas.

Betty Williams, the victim’s ex-wife, said 61-year-old Robert Locklin dropped by her house during the early hours of Monday morning. After a few hours, he insisted on going home, but his son had taken out the battery out of Locklin’s truck to prevent him from driving, as he was still drunk.

According to Williams, Locklin wanted immediately to depart for his own house, so he started walking. Ten minutes after Locklin left, their son found him dead on the street, Williams also said.

Andrew Sparrow of the Seagoville Police Department said Locklin was the victim of a hit-and-run. The driver who hit Locklin later turned himself in.
