Humberto Olvera Killed in Hit-and-Run off North Freeway in Houston, TX

UPDATE (October 12, 2022): Sources have identified the victim of this accident as Humberto Coronado Olvera. Police are still searching for information about the vehicle that fatally struck Olvera.

Houston, TX — September 24, 2022, a 28-year-old pedestrian was struck and killed in a hit-and-run on a North Freeway exit ramp in Houston.

Authorities say the incident happened around 8:30 a.m. on the West Mount Houston Road ramp from the North Freeway. Preliminary investigation suggests the victim was trying to run across the ramp for unknown reasons when he was hit and killed by a southbound vehicle. After the collision the driver reportedly fled the scene without stopping to help.

Commentary on Humberto Olvera Hit-and-Run in Houston

It's tragic anytime someone dies due to an accident, but it's also incredibly frustrating when someone flees the scene after causing such terrible damage. Hopefully the driver can be identified and apprehended to face the consequences of their actions, but more than that it's best to find out precisely why they left the scene. If they wanted to hide something--drugs, stolen vehicle, drunk driving--it's important to know that as well.

Before the driver's motivations can be learned, though, first they must be found. Police can work toward that goal by releasing any details or developments to the public as quickly as possible. With the community's help someone--a concerned family member or friend, a coworker, or even a total stranger--may come forward with information police can use to make an arrest. We even recently learned of a hit-and-run suspect being arrested a full year after her accident because someone overheard her bragging about getting away with it at a bar three counties away.

As long as investigators stay vigilant and the public works with them to find the hit-and-run vehicle and its driver, I'm optimistic this can be resolved in time. With the driver in custody and their motives hopefully made more clear, any additional steps can then be determined.
