The Harris County Sheriff's Office is asking for your help identifying the driver who hit a pedestrian on SH 6 last Friday and fled the scene.
According to reports from the Harris County Sheriff's Office, on November 22, 2019, just after 4:30 AM, Deborah Hodges (pictured above) was in the northbound number one lane of the 8400 block of South SH 6 in far west Harris County. It is unknown if she was standing in the roadway or crossing when an unknown vehicle traveling northbound in the number one lane struck her.
The vehicle fled the scene, failing to stop and render aid. Hodges was found with no signs of life on scene. While Hodges was downed in the roadway, a Toyota Camry operated by Terrance Richardson struck the female. Mr. Richardson called 911 and remained on scene. He did not exhibit any signs of intoxication.
This case is currently under investigation by the Vehicular Crimes Division of the Harris County Sheriff's Office. If you have any information, please call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS (8477).
Prayers to the family of the victim and thanks to Mr Richardson for stopping and calling 911. I hope the guilty party is caught or comes forward and claims responsibility. Let us all be aware and slow down during this busy time of year.
