Pedestrian Killed in Hit-and-Run Accident on West Gulf Bank Rd in Houston, TX

Houston, TX — January 29, 2022, a 35-year-old man was struck and killed by one or more vehicles in a hit-and-run on West Gulf Bank Road in Houston.

Authorities say the incident happened around 5:00 a.m. in the area of 3400 West Gulf Bank. Preliminary investigation suggests only that the victim was on foot in the roadway near that address when he was fatally hit by at least one westbound vehicle. No vehicles remained at the scene.

Responders pronounced the pedestrian dead on-site. Investigators are searching for more information about the hit-and-run vehicle(s) and driver(s).

No further information is currently available.

There's no telling exactly what happened here yet, but one thing I'm sure everyone can agree on is that whoever hit the victim should have stayed at the scene. I doubt I'll ever understand what goes through someone's mind when they leave a hurt victim behind, but no excuse they come up with justifies their choice. Whether one driver or many were involved in Houston, it's important that authorities find and apprehend them so they can answer for what happened.

What police are hopefully doing now—searching for material evidence (vehicle debris sometimes has serial numbers that help identify its make and model), 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 details and developments are pieces of the puzzle that someone may put together to recognize a suspect. It may take time, but I'm hopeful that diligent investigation and public cooperation will ensure someone answers for the loss of a man's life.
