SHERMAN, Tex. (KXII) - Police have identified the victim in a fatal crash in Sherman Thursday night.

40-year-old Kyle Deriso was struck and killed by a suspected drunk driver Thursday around 10:30 p.m. while crossing Texoma Parkway.

Family of the victim's fiancee says Deriso was an employee at Taco Casa, and had gone back to work to pick up something he forgot.

He then made his way across the street to Sonic to buy food for his pregnant fiancee.

Amina Omayebu worked with him at Taco Casa, and says everyone is heartbroken.

"They live right here and they walk back and forth to work, and I just know they walk this area and my heart just sank," said Omayebu.

38-year-old Melissa Thompson of Sherman was arrested for intoxication manslaughter, and released from jail after posting $30,000 bond.
