HUMBLE, TX — Talk about a liquor run. In Humble, a man was hit while darting across the Sam Houston Parkway West after allegedly stealing some beer from a nearby Walmart.

Around 9:30, last night, the man in his 20s, allegedly stole booze from the Walmart on Sam Houston Parkway West near Wilson Road.

Thinking he was about to get caught, he took off running across the parking lot and onto the feeder road.

That’s when investigators say a woman driving an SUV accidentally hit him.

Police tell us he was still clinging to the bottle of booze when he was found.

At last check he’s in the hospital and is stable.

But the story doesn’t end there.

As the SUV and other cars pulled over at the scene a suspected drunk driver slammed into the back of them.

He then took off running across the Walmart parking lot and was later found hiding behind the store.
