MU sophomore killed while crossing street in Dallas

A 20-year-old MU sophomore died at the scene of a car crash while he was crossing the street early Sunday morning.

Dallas’ ABC affiliate WFAA reports that around 2:30 a.m., a black Dodge Charger hit Paul Miltenberger when he tried crossing East Mockingbird Lane, a six-lane street. The car, heading west, left the scene after hitting Miltenberger. The report says Miltenberger did not use a marked crosswalk. Police did not have a suspect description, other than the car the person drove.

Dallas police did not respond to ABC 17 News’ calls for information Sunday night.

Miltenberger, originally from the Dallas area, served as a brother in the Mizzou chapter of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity.

“Both the family and fraternity are asking for privacy until we learn more,” fraternity president Samuel Gerlach said in an email concerning Miltenberger’s death.

The fraternity sent out a tweet Sunday afternoon addressing Miltenberger’s death.

“Whether you knew him as Paul, P-RO, or anything in between, we lost an incredible brother today. RIP Paul, our prayers are with you,” the tweet reads.

A manager at Columbia Country Club told ABC 17 News Miltenberger worked there as recently as the fall of last year.
