Cyclist Hit, Injured by Hit-and-Run Vehicle on 39th Street in Port Arthur, TX

Port Arthur, TX — January 5, 2023, a 28-year-old man on a bicycle was struck and seriously injured by a hit-and-run vehicle on 39th Street in Port Arthur.

Authorities say the incident happened around 7:40 p.m. on 39th near Memorial Boulevard. Preliminary investigation suggests only that the victim was riding a bicycle in the area when he was hit by a motor vehicle that left the scene without stopping.

The cyclist suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

The investigation continues as police seek information about the hit-and-run vehicle and its driver.

No further information is currently available.

It's terrible and frustrating to read about yet another hit-and-run on Texas roads, yet more of them seemingly pop up in the news every day. For the life of me I'll never understand what goes through someone's head that would make them abandon someone they injured in the roadway, but whatever their motivations they should answer for the damage they did.

I'm sure authorities are doing everything they can to locate the hit-and-run vehicle--searching for material evidence, asking for witnesses in news releases and on social media, seeking video footage from homes, businesses, or traffic cameras in the area, and in general looking for anything that might give them a lead. Whatever information they can find and then relay to the public is another piece of the puzzle that someone will eventually put together to recognize a suspect. If everyone does their part and stays vigilant, I'm hopeful this can be resolved appropriately.
