Woman Injured in Hit-and-Run on Frick Road in Houston, TX
Houston, TX — October 23, 2022, a 47-year-old woman was struck and injured by a vehicle in a hit-and-run on Frick Road in north Houston.
Authorities say the incident happened around 8:40 p.m. along the 2400 block of Frick Road. Preliminary investigation and witness statements suggest a dark grey pickup truck, believed to be a 1990 to 1997 Chevy Silverado, was weaving through the road erratically when it struck the victim in the westbound lanes. The driver then left the scene without stopping.
The woman was transported to a local hospital in critical condition.
The investigation continues as police seek the hit-and-run vehicle, which they say may have damage to its right side.
No further information is currently available.
Commentary on Hit-and-Run on Frick Road in Houston
It's hugely frustrating to see reports like this, and I'd imagine folks in Houston are sick of people hurting locals and then fleeing from responsibility for the damage they caused. That's why in many cases community members provide useful information that helps police track down runaway drivers.
The eyewitnesses who saw this incident are a good example. Thanks to the description they provided to police the search can be narrowed to a specific make, model, and color of vehicle. With that information distributed to the public hopefully someone will spot the vehicle soon and call a tip line. In the meantime police should continue to seek any sources of further information they can find.
When (and I say when, not if) the driver is located, hopefully authorities can find out more about why specifically they chose to abandon the scene. That information could prove critical when determining how best to help the injured victim. As long as everyone cooperates and remains vigilant, I remain hopeful justice can be done here.
