Jon Ortega Killed in Hit-and-Run on South WW White Rd in San Antonio, TX

UPDATE (January 20, 2023): The pedestrian killed in this accident has been identified as 25-year-old Jon Abraham Ortega.

San Antonio, TX — January 18, 2023, a male pedestrian was struck and killed by a vehicle on South WW White Road in East San Antonio.

Authorities say the incident happened around 7:00 a.m. on the 200 block of South WW White near Interstate 10. Preliminary investigation suggests witnesses allegedly saw the victim "staggering" through the roadway when he was fatally struck by a vehicle, possibly an SUV, which left the scene without stopping.

The man, believed to be in his 20s or 30s, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The investigation continues. No further information is currently available.

Right now there aren't many available details about what happened here, but that doesn't mean there are none to find. More often than not hit-and-runs are resolved because diligent investigation reveals important information that authorities then share with the public, after which someone is able to connect the dots and contact authorities with helpful tips.

Whether crucial details will be found in security footage from nearby cameras, vehicle debris at the scene, witnesses who saw more of what happened, or even the runaway driver simply contacting authorities after enough public pressure, I remain hopeful that continued efforts will provide answers for the victim's loved ones. They deserve no less.
