Pedestrian Killed in Hit-and-Run on 1st Street in Mission, TX

Mission, TX — December 22, 2022, a female pedestrian was struck and fatally injured by a hit-and-run vehicle on 1st Street in Mission.

Authorities say the incident happened around 4:30 p.m. at 1st Street and Conway Avenue. Police are still investigating the exact circumstances, but say the victim was on foot in the area when she was hit and killed by a passing vehicle that left the scene without stopping.

Police reportedly found surveillance footage that helped them identify the make and model of the runaway vehicle. The investigation continues.

No further information is currently available.

It's always frustrating and disappointing to read about Texas hit-and-runs, yet more seem to appear in the news all the time. There's no excuse for a driver hitting someone and leaving the scene, so it's important to track anyone who does that down and ensure they face proper consequences. For that to happen police must stay diligent and community members should come forward with any information they may have about the vehicle or a suspect.

It's encouraging that police seem to know the make and model they're looking for, as that's more than they often have to start with. However, it's unlikely to be enough on its own. That's why it's important to share any new details or developments with the public so they can keep an eye out for the vehicle and its operator.

When--not if, but when--the suspect is caught, hopefully investigators will find out what they were thinking. They might simply have panicked, but in many cases something else (illegal contraband, outstanding warrants, drunk driving) contributed to their poor decision. Only time and thorough investigation can tell, but I remain hopeful that there will be a resolution. A woman lost her life through no apparent fault of her own, and that warrants maximum effort for her loved ones.
