Houston, TX -- January 8, 2023, Amber Swiney was killed after an accident involving a driver that left the scene.
Authorities said they were called to the scene at around 3:18 a.m. along Spur 5 in the area of Elgin Street.
It appears from the initial public details that Amber Rene Swiney was walking at the time along the curb. While there, it appears a vehicle struck her, then fled the scene. Swiney succumbed to fatal injuries as a result.
There isn't a clear description of the vehicle at this time, but people would be surprised how much can be done with a time of day and a location. Runaway drivers usually get caught because a vigilant member of the community is able to connect the dots. Houston sees far too many hit-and-runs, and I know the community is tired of seeing headlines like this. Someone will no doubt see the details in the public media and come forward to authorities.
