Man dies after apparently falling off back of vehicle, Houston police say

A man who died Thursday night appears to have fallen off the back of a vehicle, Houston police say.

The man was found injured in the 9500 block of West Montgomery Road around 9:30 p.m. He was taken to the hospital, where he later died.


Police say it appears the man may have grabbed onto the back of a vehicle while it was stopped at a red light, and then he held onto the moving vehicle for a bit before falling off.

There is no description of the vehicle at this time. Police say it is possible the driver didn't know the man was riding on the back of the vehicle.

Anyone with information on the vehicle or identity of the driver being sought for questioning is urged to contact the HPD Hit and Run Unit at 713-247-4072.
