Jenny Francely Castro Injured in Alleged Hit-and-run Accident in Harris County, TX
Harris County, TX -- December 17, 2022, Jenny Francely Castro was injured after an accident where a driver crashed, then allegedly fled.
Officials said they were called to the scene at around 10:35 p.m. It happened in the area of Highway 6 and West Little York Road.
30-year-old Jenny Castro was said to be a passenger in a Toyota Rav4 traveling northbound along the highway. That vehicle was stopped at a red light at West Little York when a Jeep Grand Cherokee reportedly did not slow down in time, crashing into the Toyota.
Castro had injuries described as non-incapacitating following the wreck. The Jeep driver allegedly fled the scene, but details suggest they were arrested and face pending charges. When someone is hurt in a hit-and-run, that's just about the best piece of news one can hear. If evidence corroborates the allegations, then that person will no doubt see a day in court to answer for what happened.
But it's important folks understand these situations aren't always so cut-and-dry. Why did the driver flee? Could it be as simple as panic? Perhaps, but it's more often something like drunk driving, drugs, stolen vehicles, warrants, etc. There could be more complex issues to address, but the details currently available are far from tell the whole story.
