Woman Injured in Hit-and-run Accident on Medical Park Drive in Odessa, TX
Odessa, TX -- February 10, 2023, a woman was injured due to an accident where a vehicle struck her along Medical Park Drive.
Investigators said that the incident happened at around 4:51 a.m. along Medical Park Drive just of Dorado Drive.
Officials said that a 34-year-old woman walking along the roadway when a vehicle hit her. That vehicle then left the scene.
The woman sustained serious injuries due to the collision. Police say they identified and spoke with a "person of interest," but no further details have been released.
It's at least encouraging that police are speaking with someone, as that's often a precursor to someone being held accountable for leaving someone behind at an accident scene. It could be this is just an unusual situation that the driver didn't even know about until authorities contacted them. Most of the time, though, it involves drivers trying to hide something—warrants, drugs, drunk driving, stolen vehicles, that sort of thing. Could it be something like that happened here, as well?
