Daniel Rodriguez Killed in Car Accident in Houston, TX
Houston, TX -- January 13, 2023, Daniel Rodriguez was killed due to an accident where a crash occurred, and a driver fled the scene.
Investigations said that the incident happened at approximately 3:43 a.m. at the intersection of Clay Road and Hickory Downs Drive, just off Highway 6. Preliminary details say that Daniel Rodriguez was in a Honda Accord traveling through the intersection. While doing so, a Chevy Trailblazer crashed into Rodriguez. That driver, unidentified at this time, fled the scene on foot. Rodriguez succumbed to fatal injuries. Police did not say who had the right-of-way at the time, and they continue to search for the runaway driver.
I certainly can't shed light on what happened or who's involved anymore than the rest of the public seeing these reports. But frankly, when police say it's unclear who ran the red light, and one of the drivers fled the scene, I'd say chances are leaning pretty darn heavily toward the driver that seemed to be scared to talk to authorities—so much so that they left a man with fatal injuries behind.
That's why it's so crucial in these situations to keep the details as public as possible. Someone is bound to connect the dots and come forward to assist police. The fact police seem to have the vehicle in custody gives even more hope that getting closure for this man's family will simply be a matter of time.
