Houston, TX -- December 21, 2022, Ayesha Syed and Asfar Syed were injured as the result of an accident where a driver hit them, then fled.

Preliminary details released by officials said that the incident happened just after 9:30 p.m. along Fondren Road off the corner of Westpark Drive.

It appears that 73-year-old Ayesha Syed and 85-year-old Asfar Syed were in a Mercedes-Benz traveling westbound along West Park. At Fondren, police say that a northbound driver allegedly in a stolen vehicle fleeing authorities crashed into the Syeds' vehicle. The Syeds' injuries were not specified. Records show the driver alleged to be at fault for the accident is facing charges for failure to stop and render aid.

If nothing else, it's a positive step forward anytime police find someone to hold accountable after a hit-and-run. If they have the right person, there will no doubt be appropriate consequences. But are authorities being thorough enough to find out why the driver fled? They mentioned a stolen vehicle, which is certainly common. But what about drunk driving? Drugs? Warrants? Other things one would want to hide from police? It may not seem important, but to just about everyone that's come to me for help over the years, knowing the full story was incredibly important, even if it was just for some closure.
