Pedestrian Injured by Vehicle in Hit-and-Run on César Chávez Hwy in El Paso, TX

El Paso, TX — November 17, 2022, a pedestrian was hospitalized after an alleged hit-and-run on César Chávez Border Highway in El Paso.

Authorities say the incident happened Thursday in the area of César Chávez and Fonseca. Preliminary investigation suggests only that a vehicle, thought to be a dark-colored SUV--possibly a Ford with a damaged headlight--hit a pedestrian in the area and then left without stopping.

The pedestrian was transported to an area hospital for treatment of unspecified injuries.

The crash remains under investigation. No further information is currently available.

Commentary on Pedestrian Hit-and-Run on César Chávez Hwy

These sorts of accidents are deeply frustrating to read about, yet it seems new hit-and-run reports come up almost daily. Someone is left injured in the street, and until action is taken another person continues living their life without answering for the damage they caused. So what made them drive away?

There's a lot of answers to that--panic, active warrants, stolen vehicle, no license, drunk driving, and many others--but before questions of motive can really be addressed the driver must be found. Steps being taken now are vital as the news and police continue to put details in the public eye. If they keep that up and the community cooperates, someone may soon connect the dots and contact authorities with helpful information. As long as everyone stays diligent, I remain hopeful that justice will be done here.
