3 Injured when Car Hits Pedicab, Flees on Capitol Street in Houston, TX

Houston, TX — September 27, 2022, three people aboard a pedicab were injured in a hit-and-run collision with a car on Capitol Street in Houston.

Authorities say the incident happened around 10:00 p.m. at the intersection of Capitol and Austin streets. Preliminary investigation suggests a pedal-powered taxi had picked up two passengers after an Astros game at nearby Minute Maid Stadium when the pedicab was suddenly hit from behind by a car. The driver then fled the scene without stopping.

The cab's three occupants were ejected during the crash; all three are expected to recover.

The investigation is ongoing. No further information is available at this time.

Commentary on Houston Pedicab Hit-and-Run on Capitol St

It's always frustrating to learn of another incident in Texas where someone fled the scene of a crash they caused, yet it seems like every day there are new reports of hit-and-run incidents all over the state.

Police are hard at work interviewing witnesses and looking for local camera footage from businesses or traffic cams that could shed further light on what happened. Hopefully they'll find something they can use to track down the vehicle and its driver, because it's important to find out how that person could possibly try to justify leaving people injuries in the street. Did they just panic? Were they drunk? Or did they have something else to hide, like drugs or an expired license?

Any, all, or none of those--or something else entirely--could have been behind their poor choice to flee, but only further careful investigation could really say. In the meantime it's best if the local community cooperates any way it can and calls tip lines with any helpful information. If police stay diligent and the public helps out, I'm hopeful justice can be served.
