Police seek leads after pedestrian hit and killed


Police are looking for the driver of a pickup that struck and killed a man Sunday on a north Houston street, according to police.

The man was not in a crosswalk when he was hit around 10:30 p.m. along North Shepherd Drive, near Thornton Street, police said.

Witnesses saw the truck — described as red and black — strike the man and then continue to turn onto Thornton. The driver could not be found.

The driver will likely face charges that include felony failure to stop and render aid.

Hours earlier, police investigat­ed another death of a pedestrian. A woman walking on a bridge along FM 1960 around 8 p.m. was hit and killed by a driver who did not see her, police said. The driver remained at the scene and called for help. No charges are expected in that incident.
