One teenage boy is dead after being hit by a car in north Harris County.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office responded to 702 Rankin Road in north Houston for a fatal car accident around 7:30 p.m. According to HCSO Captain McConnell, two 15-year-old boys were crossing an intersection going southbound when one boy was hit by a car going eastbound.


Witnesses told officials that the vehicle had the right of way. The person in the car and a witness stayed at the scene until the police arrived.

Officials say they have not spoken to the family due to not having identification on the young boy.
