Zita Maldonado Injured in Hit-and-Run on Tyler Street in Amarillo, TX

Amarillo, TX — January 4, 2023, 56-year-old Zita Maldonado was injured by a hit-and-run vehicle on Tyler Street in Potter County.

Authorities say the incident happened around 6:50 p.m. on the 1200 block of North Tyler near 13th Avenue. Preliminary investigation suggests Maldonado's parked her Ford Focus legally on the street; then exited the vehicle. As she got out a northbound Ford Mustang on Tyler struck her and the Ford; the driver tried to leave the scene but veered off the road and hit a tree nearby. He then allegedly ran away on foot.

Maldonado sustained serious injuries in the collision.

No further information is currently available.

It seems the driver responsible for the victim's injuries fled the scene but was later identified (though it's unclear how). I'm relieved to see that someone will answer for what happened on Tyler Street, but as always it's still important to investigate carefully and figure out the whole story. Why exactly did the suspect run away?

I don't know more than reports can say about what happened here, but that's part of why I'm calling for investigators to be sure they have all the facts. The victim certainly deserves those, and any other steps might depend on what they turn out to be.
