Javier Leyva Killed, Brandon Bakeman Injured in Hit-and-run Accident in Houston, TX

It appears that a 42-year-old man traveling on the highway stopped along the shoulder to help someone with a flat tire. While changing the tire, a vehicle crashed into the car with the flat, hitting the Good Samaritan in the process. That other vehicle then fled the scene.

The Good Samaritan died as a result of the collision. Right now, authorities have not given additional details. But that doesn't mean the driver that left the scene is off the hook. By keeping the details as public as possible, someone is bound to connect the dots and come forward with vital information. That's often how authorities are able to identify someone, find out why they ran, and potentially see they face a court date when necessary. I maintain hope that will happen here in due time.
