Pedestrian Injured in Bus Hit-and-run Accident on Pierce Street in Houston, TX
Houston, TX -- December 17, 2022, a pedestrian was injured following an accident where a bus hit them on Pierce Street, then left the scene.
Investigators said that the incident took place at around 11:09 p.m. along Pierce Street off the corner of Fannin Street.
Preliminary details show that a 48-year-old man was on eastbound lanes at the time when an unidentified bus struck him. That bus left the scene. The pedestrian had incapacitating injuries due to the accident.
No further information is available at this time. It's not often one sees a bus implicated in a hit-and-run. I can't help wondering what kind of bus that would be. Most every city bus will have some type of recording device on it. A lot of charter buses do, as well. Could there be some company or employer out there that knows this happened but has yet to come forward?
Maybe this is all a big misunderstanding, but that's not the sort of thing I would leave up to chance. A reckless driver is one thing, but a company hiding such serious information could be a danger to the community as a whole.
