Double Cruelty: Two Cars Hit, Kill Pedestrian, Both Drive On & Offer No Help
Both drivers hightailed it out of there.
Houston police are looking for not just one, but two vehicles involved in a deadly hit-and-run crash in the predawn hours today.
HPD says a 41-year-old man, whose identity has not been released pending notification of family members, was trying to cross the 500 block of West Tidwell about 5:35 a.m. this morning when he was hit by two vehicles: "a pickup truck and passenger car, both of unknown make or model."
Neither driver stopped to render any help or investigate, police say. The investigation is continuing.
Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Hit and Run Unit at 713-247-4065 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
