Teen hit by car near Davis High School, suspected hit-and-run driver detained

Authorities say a teenager was hit by a car Monday morning behind an Aldine ISD high school in north Harris County. 


Details are limited, as it's an active investigation, but constable deputies with Harris County Precinct 4 were called to the 12500 block of Ella Blvd behind Benjamin Davis High School. 

That's where investigators say an unidentified 18-year-old girl was hit by a vehicle. 

The driver reportedly fled the scene, but later found near Spears and Watson, as well as the vehicle in a ditch. Officials did not identify the hit-and-run driver, but said the 17-year-old male was in custody and would be booked into the Harris County Jail for Failure to Stop and Render Aid.

Meanwhile, the 18-year-old was treated at the scene before she was rushed to a hospital after suffering life-threatening injuries. 


No additional information was made available, as of this writing, but an investigation remains underway.
