HOUSTON - A pedestrian died and another was taken to the hospital after a hit-and-run crash in the parking lot of a bar in southeast Houston early Monday morning, police say.
The crash occurred around 2 a.m. in the 11000 block of Fuqua Street near Sabo Road.
Police say a black pickup truck drove through the parking lot at a high rate of speed and struck two people. The driver then left the scene without stopping to render aid, authorities say.
A 32-year-old man died at the scene. A 27-year-old woman was taken to the hospital to be treated for abrasions and cuts.
Police say the driver of the pickup truck was possibly intoxicated and, according to witnesses, had caused a disturbance in the parking lot prior to the crash.
The make and model of the pickup truck are unknown, but police say the vehicle could have front-end damage.
Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Hit and Run Unit at 713-247-4072 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
