Somewhere out there is someone who was driving an "unknown black vehicle" in the 13600 block of Westheimer about 2:30 Saturday morning.
Whoever he or she is, the driver killed a 24-year-old mom and her two-year-old daughter, then sped away.
Victoria Evelyn Miranda, 24, and Emma Leann Miranda, two, who both lived in Conroe, were trying to cross Westheimer that early morning, police say. They were hit and pronounced dead at the scene.
The only info the police have is the vehicle was apparently black. "There are no known witnesses to the incident and investigators did not know where the victims were heading at the time of the accident," HPD says.
Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Hit and Run Detail at 713-247-4065 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
