In Houston on Monday, July 9, a man driving an SUV on Fuqua crossed the median and crashed into a vehicle driven by an eight-months-pregnant woman. The man drove off after the crash. After being rushed to the hospital and undergoing an emergency C-section, her baby tragically died.
In an all-too-frequent scene in Houston, yet another pedestrian was killed by a hit-and-run driver on Tuesday night, this time on Veteran's Memorial in Northwest Houston. This driver may face justice sooner than most, however-the Harris County Sheriff's Office arrested him after he was tracked down and detained by a witness.
Hit-and-run crashes continue to plague our community. Local news organizations have recently reported two such incidents.
