HOUSTON, TX – A suspect was charged in a fatal hit-and-run crash that took place on the North Loop on Saturday night, the Houston Police Department reports.

The victim was walking near 4500 North Loop when he was struck by a red Chevrolet Lumina driven by 84-year-old Pedro Diaz-Cruz. The victim was then hit by a second vehicle, a black Chevrolet Silverado.
