Howard Perkins Jr. Injured in Alleged Hit-and-run Accident in Harris County, TX
Harris County, TX -- February 19, 2023, Howard Perkins Jr. was injured after an accident allegedly involving a hit-and-run driver.
Investigators said that the incident happened just after 1:30 a.m. on Wallisville Road at Maxey Road. According to initial details, 63-year-old Howard Perkins Jr. was on a Honda motorcycle traveling on Maxey. At the intersection, it appears a Toyota Rav4 failed to yield and crashed into Perkins.
Perkins sustained incapacitating injuries due to the crash. According to authorities, the other driver failed to stop and render aid and also allegedly had been drinking. It appears there are charges pending.
If it's true police know who was involved here, then it's certainly a positive step forward for them to be held accountable for their actions. Even if it turns out they weren't intoxicated, leaving the scene of an accident while someone is in need of help is just unacceptable. If alcohol was a factor here, though, then it's possible there may yet be even more serious consequences before things are made right for the victim involved here.
