Police say an unidentified 43-year-old man left his parents’ home at the 6600 block of St. Augustine Street, near the intersection of Yellowstone Boulevard on Wednesday evening and walked across Yellowstone on the east side of the street around 6:20 p.m.
He was then hit by a black Dodge Ram pickup truck going westbound on the 4100 block of Yellowstone and the truck didn’t stop. The victim died at the scene.
A preliminary investigation indicated the pedestrian failed to yield the right-of-way. Officers are still searching for the pickup, which they say should have front end damage.
Anyone with information on the identity of the wanted driver or on the wanted vehicle is urged to contact the HPD Hit and Run Unit at 713-247-4072 or speak anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
