Pedestrian Killed in Alleged Hit-and-Run on FM 1314 in Porter, TX

Porter, TX -- June 18, 2021, a pedestrian was struck and killed in an alleged hit-and-run accident on Farm to Market Road 1314 in Montgomery County.

Authorities say the incident happened before 1:15 a.m. Friday when county deputies were dispatched to FM 1314 near Porter High School. Responding investigators located an adult male unresponsive in the roadway and believe he was struck by a hit-and-run vehicle. After the initial crash two other vehicles hit the man in the eastbound lane, but both stopped at the scene and cooperated with authorities. Neither driver was believed to be involved in the initial crash as neither vehicle was damaged.

The unidentified victim was pronounced dead at the scene. Investigators noted he was wearing dark clothes in an unlit area with a speed limit of 55 miles per hour.

Commentary on Alleged Hit-and-Run Accident on FM 1314 in Porter

It's enormously frustrating when something like this happens. It's bad enough a family must suffer the loss of their loved one, but the person involved leaving the scene only makes things worse. So what made them run? Was it just panic, or could something else be involved? Warrants? Drugs? Drunk driving? Obviously authorities won't know until they find the driver, which can still happen if the community bands together and helps the police with any information they have to help track the suspect down. These situations usually reach a conclusion when details reach someone who can connect the dots, do the right thing, and come forward. I maintain hope that the victim's family will yet see justice done, and everyone responsible for their loss will answer for their role in the fatal accident.
