Houston Chronicle Sunday - - CITY | STATE -

Po­lice are search­ing for a mo­torist who struck and killed a man Satur­day morn­ing on the North Free­way and then left the scene.

Two peo­ple were in­volved in a sin­gle-car ac­ci­dent around 3:20 a.m. on In­ter­state 45 North at Belt­way 8, said Hous­ton po­lice Sgt. Thomas Fen­dia. The two got out of their car and began walk­ing north­bound. One of them saw a dis­abled ve­hi­cle and began to cross the free­way. He was struck and thrown about 30 yards and died at the scene.

The other per­son in­volved in the orig­i­nal sin­gle-ve­hi­cle ac­ci­dent was not hurt but ac­knowl­edged to po­lice that he and the driver had both been drink­ing.

The driver who struck the man on the free­way did not stop. Po­lice do not have a clear de­scrip­tion of the ve­hi­cle and are talk­ing with wit­nesses.
