Preston Hollow residence of Bill McRorey: Dave Perry-Miller & Associates

The Texas Department of Transportation released new information about the fatal accident on Sept. 10 that occurred when a subcontractor for the LBJ Express project jumped a median and killed two other drivers. According to reports, the 19-year-old dump truck driver was reckless in the moments before the accident, taking “faulty evasive action by improper braking and steering to the left,” the Dallas Morning News reports.

Restaurateur Bill McRorey, who currently owns Rare in the Shops at Park Lane, has listed his Preston Hollow home for sale at $5.5 million, reports CultureMap. McRorey is currently facing litigation for “alleging fraud, failure to pay salary and failure to maintain health insurance.”

Yesterday police reported that 24-year-old Kenneth Barahona-Nuñez—a mentally disabled man living just west of Preston Hollow since last weekend—has been found unharmed. “A nurse at a local hospital matched the photo that authorities released today with a man who was admitted under a different name,” the Dallas Morning News reports.
