HOUSTON - We already know driving on Houston's streets can be dangerous. Even when you're not the driver, you're still at risk.

Saturday night, Houston police say street racing down Chimney Rock may be why three adult pedestrians ended up in the hospital after a car crashed into a metro bus stop where they were standing.

"All of them were struck by the vehicle. All three were transported to area hospitals, two with non-life-threatening injuries, and one with life-threatening injuries," said Sgt. J.R. Roberts of Houston Police Department.

Witnesses say a silver Impala was possibly racing a white Ford F-150, when it lost control, but the driver didn't even stop.

"After striking the Metro bus stop, the vehicle then continued to flee down Chimney Rock towards Westheimer," Sgt. Roberts added.

HPD found the Impala and its driver at a nearby apartment complex. That wasn't the end of it. The driver continued to flee, this time on foot, but he didn't get very far.

Cops arrested him and now is facing charges of failure to stop and render aid. The driver could face more charges if the seriously injured victim dies.
