Udeme Antia Killed in Alleged Hit-and-run Accident in Houston, TX
Houston, TX — July 29, 2023, Udeme Antia was killed as the result of an alleged hit-and-run accident at around 2:18 a.m. along Interstate 10.
Investigations at this time show that the incident took place along the westbound toll lanes of Katy Freeway and extended onto the main lanes due to a chain reaction of collisions.
Initial statements indicate that 38-year-old Udeme Antia was on foot walking a Harley-Davidson off the westbound toll lanes. Authorities were not sure if there was a preliminary crash or some sort of mechanical issues.
As Antia walked the bike off-road, however, authorities say that a westbound Ford F-450 hit Antia and the motorcycle, pushing them toward the main lanes to the right. After this collision, police say a Ford F-150 on the tollway hit Antia and fled the scene. Following this, an unknown vehicle then hit Antia, who had been forced onto main lanes of the freeway, and also left the scene.
Antia died as a result of the collisions. There were no other reported injuries. Details suggest that authorities identified the person they believe to have been in the Ford F-150 that left the scene. There appear to be pending charges for failure to stop and render aid. Additional details are unavailable at this time.
