Jelbin Alvarado Killed in Hit-and-run Accident on Loop 610 in Houston, TX

Houston, TX -- January 6, 2023, Jelbin Alvarado was killed following an accident on Loop 610 involving a runaway driver.

Houston police officials said they responded to eastbound lanes of North Loop near Ella Boulevard Friday evening. It appears a collision occurred with a motorcycle, which details from officials suggest was driven by Jelbin Alvarado, and what was described as a "yellow Honda CBR". Alvarado was then hit by a tractor-trailer. Reports indicate Alvarado was pronounced deceased at the scene, police said.

Police were able to speak with the trucker but continue to search for the Honda driver involved. No further information is available at this time. Hit-and-runs are a big problem all across the state, but I have little doubt folks down in Houston are just plain sick of these headlines.

Too many drivers out there would prefer to hide things like warrants, drugs, drunk driving, and other mistakes than take responsibility for their role in a deadly wreck. For all we know, that driver didn't even cause the crash but chose to run anyway and leave an already grieving family out in the wind without clear answers about what happened to their loved one.

With these situations, one of the best things one can do is simply remain vigilant. When police find drivers, it's usually because someone in the community was able to connect the dots and help ID the runaway driver. I remain hopeful the same will happen here in due time.
