Scooter Rider Killed in Hit-and-Run on Pease St in Houston, TX

Houston, TX — January 29, 2023, a man on an electric scooter was struck and killed by a pickup truck in a hit-and-run on Pease Street in Houston.

Authorities say the incident happened around 12:30 a.m. along Pease near Louisiana Street. Preliminary investigation suggests the pickup was traveling in the far left lane of Pease when it allegedly ran a red light and struck a man who was crossing the road on an electric scooter. After the impact the pickup driver left the scene without stopping.

The scooter rider was fatally injured in the collision.

The accident remains under investigation. No further information is currently available.

It's always terrible and frustrating to learn of another hit-and-run on Texas roads, yet it seems every day more of them pop up. I'm not sure I'll ever really understand what goes through someone's mind that helps them justify leaving a hurt victim behind, but no excuse is really valid. That's why it's so important that authorities find and apprehend the driver so they can answer for what happened.

What police are doing now—searching for material evidence, asking for witnesses or anyone with information to contact them, looking for video footage from businesses or traffic cameras, etc.—is crucial for finding helpful clues. Any new developments they can relay to the public are more pieces of the puzzle that someone may put together to recognize a suspect. It may take some time, but I'm hopeful that if everyone cooperates that someone will answer for the loss of a man's life.
