Two Teens Killed in Hit-and-Run on Rigsby Avenue in San Antonio, TX

UPDATE (December 29, 2022): Sources say that the SAPD have arrested 23-year-old Lee Roy Morales in connection to this incident. Morales was charged with Failure to Stop and Render Aid-Death.

San Antonio, TX — December 16, 2022, two teens were struck and killed by a vehicle in a hit-and-run on Rigsby Avenue in East San Antonio.

Authorities say the incident happened Friday on the 2700 block of Rigsby near Bonair Drive. The exact cause and circumstances of the accident aren't clear yet, but early reports say two boys aged 15 and 17 were crossing the street in a designated crosswalk when they were hit by an eastbound vehicle that left the scene without stopping.

Both teens were fatally injured in the accident.

The investigation continues. No further information is currently available.

UPDATE (December 29, 2022): I'm relieved to see that authorities used evidence from the scene and anonymous tips from the community to track down and apprehend a suspect. Those boys' families deserve the peace of mind of knowing the man who took their loved ones' lives will face charges.

Some may think there's little else to say about this, but police must still clarify exactly why the driver left the scene. It may not be more involved than fleeing in fear, but if anyone else should be held responsible for the terrible and irreversible damage done on Rigsby Avenue it's important to know that and take the steps to do so.

ORIGINAL: It's terrible and frustrating to learn of yet another hit-and-run on Texas roads. Clearly authorities must do everything they can to locate the driver who left the scene--not only to ensure they face appropriate punishment, but also to learn precisely why they left after ending two young lives. Whatever their motive, from simple panic to having other things to hide from authorities, the people who lost those boys deserve to know the truth.

What police are likely doing now--searching for material evidence, witnesses, video footage from the area, and other sources of information--is crucial in finding every possible clue. Whatever information they can find and then relay to the public is one more piece of the puzzle that someone will eventually put together to recognize a suspect. In the meantime, it's important not to lose hope.
