Maria Hernandez, 59, Bayou Body Count No. 153

All Maria Hernandez wanted was to keep the front of her home on Crosstimbers clean. Instead she ended up dead.

Hernandez, 57, 59, was slammed by a hit-and-run driver in the 400 block of Crosstimbers a little before 9 a.m. Sunday morning, and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Witnesses described a gray vehicle, but could not get a license plate. The Houston Chronicle reported that the car was a Nissan or Honda.

Anyone with more information on the accident is asked to call the HPD Accident Division at (713)-247-4072.
