Ilich Reyes, Luis Reyes Injured in Hit-and-Run Crash on Pasadena Blvd in Harris County, TX

Harris County, TX — December 31, 2022, 22-year-old Ilich Reyes and 24-year-old Luis Reyes were injured in a crash on Pasadena Boulevard in Harris County.

Authorities say the incident happened around 11:25 p.m. on Pasadena at Southmore Avenue. Preliminary investigation suggests Luis Reyes was driving a Jeep Grand Cherokee east on Pasadena when he allegedly ran a red light at Southmore. As the Jeep passed through the intersection it crashed into a left-turning Nissan Altima driven by Ilich Reyes. After the collision Luis Reyes reportedly fled from the crash on foot, but he was apprehended a short time later.

Ilich and Luis Reyes both sustained serious injuries in the collision. Luis Reyes was later charged with Failure to Stop and Render Aid.

No further information is currently available.

The early details of this accident may seem pretty straightforward: Someone ran a red light and caused a crash, then ran away. To some that may seem like more than enough information, particularly since the runaway driver was caught and charged. What else is there to know?

Well, for one thing it seems like a good idea to find out precisely why the driver acted that way. Why did he run the light? Why did he try to flee? Did he just panic? Was he just overly reckless, or did he have something else he didn't want authorities to find like active warrants or an expired license? Is it possible he was intoxicated and just wasn't thinking clearly?

To be crystal clear, I don't know more than anyone else about what happened here, and I'm making no accusations—just hoping for more clarification. It's always important to investigate carefully and learn not just the immediate facts but also the greater context of a crash. The people affected by it deserve the whole story, so I hope what police found was enough to satisfy them.
