Pedestrian dies after hit-and-run crashes on Eastex Fwy in Humble

Posted on Tuesday, March 22nd, 2022 at 11:48 am    

HARRIS COUNTY, TX — One person died early Tuesday morning after being struck by two vehicles on the Eastex Freeway near central Humble, according to KHOU11.

The fatal incidents occurred on the main traffic lanes of the southbound freeway (IH-69) near Memorial Hermann Northeast Hospital at about 12:55 a.m.

A preliminary investigation indicates a 2016 Honda Civic was heading southbound when it hit the pedestrian. Authorities said the driver of the Civic appeared to have fled the scene on foot, as deputies later found the vehicle abandoned. Moments after the first crash, a second vehicle also struck the victim as they laid on the ground. No description of the second vehicle has been released, as that driver sped away from the scene before first responders arrived.

It was unclear why the victim had initially been on the roadway, but an investigation remains ongoing.
