Alvin Johnson Injured in Hit-and-Run on Peachtree Street in Houston, TX

Houston, TX — August 27, 2022, 70-year-old Alvin Johnson was seriously injured in a hit-and-run crash on Peachtree Street in Houston.

Authorities say the incident happened around 10:25 a.m. on the 8000 block of Peachtree near Weaver Road. Preliminary investigation suggests Johnson was backing a Ford Expedition out of a driveway of at a local residence when a northbound Dodge Challenger struck the back-right of the SUV. After the impact the Dodge driver fled the scene without stopping.

Johnson suffered serious injuries in the collision and was taken to an area hospital.

No further information is currently available.

I don't think I'll ever understand what must go through someone's head to make them leave a crash scene like this. Whatever their supposed reason, there's no justifiable excuse for trying to flee responsibility. I hope police had some luck tracking down the grey Charger in the weeks following this crash, as hit-and-run suspects deserve to face consequences for their selfish choices.

The driver's motive for leaving isn't the only mystery here, though. I'm also curious how a car driving on a 35mph street crashed into the corner of a full-size SUV and yet somehow caused "incapacitating" damages to the victim, who reports say was also wearing a seat belt. Unless there’s some crucial details missing from public information, this seems like the type of collision where the victim should have walked away with at most minor injuries. So what was different here?
