Houston Hit and Run Accident In NW Houston
Written by Greg on May 8, 2013
Another early morning hit and run accident has left a woman in critical condition. The accident happened on stigma airline close to 2920. The woman was apparently a pedestrian who was run over when a white van ran off the road and struck the pedestrian.
According to reports, the driver of the van stopped, backed up, got out of the van and looked at the victim before leaving the scene.
The woman, whose identity has not been disclosed, was flown by helicopter to Memorial Hermann Hospital where she is listed in critical condition. A man who will probably make an important witness in this hit and run case accompanied the woman.
Authorities are seeking the driver of the white van and asking anyone with helpful information to call the police. You can call the hit and run unit at 713-247-4065 if you have any helpful information regarding this or other hit and run accidents.
Just two weeks ago, a 46-year-old woman was killed in downtown Houston when she was trying to get into her vehicle and was struck by a white Toyota FJ Cruiser. It also happened in the early morning hours.
The number of fatal hit and run accidents in the Houston area is actually astounding. Less than 50% of the hit and run accidents are solved according to estimates.
The majority of hit and run accidents occur in the early morning hours and many occur because of concerns whether drunken-driving, outstanding warrants or even immigration status may be a factor.
