Nelson Anderson Killed by Hit-and-Run Vehicle on Ben White Boulevard in Austin, TX

UPDATE (January 19, 2022): The victim of this accident has been identified as Nelson Anderson. Investigators are still seeking information about the hit-and-run vehicle that struck Anderson in December.

Austin, TX — December 14, 2022, a pedestrian was hit and fatally injured by a vehicle on Ben White Boulevard in Austin.

Authorities say the incident happened around 2:00 a.m. at the intersection of Ben White and James Casey Street. The cause and circumstances of the accident aren't clear, but preliminary investigation suggests a passenger vehicle jumped a curb and hit the 20-year-old victim, who was riding a skateboard on the sidewalk. The driver then left the scene without stopping.

The skateboarder was rushed to an area hospital as a trauma alert but died of his injuries a short time later.

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

It's terrible and frustrating to read about yet another hit-and-run on Texas roads, yet somehow there seem to be more of them all the time. Not a single one should be overlooked or given up on, though, and authorities must do everything they can to locate the driver who left the scene in Austin. Whatever their supposed motive for doing so, that skateboarder's loved ones deserve to know the whole story.

As little clear information as there is available right now, there's still every reason to put every detail and development squarely in the public eye as soon and as often as possible. Situations like this usually reach a conclusion because a member of the community comes forward with helpful information after recognizing a vehicle or driver from the news, so anyone who saw anything that night should contact the authorities as soon as possible. I have little doubt that the victim's loved ones would do the same for others if the roles were reversed.
