Fatal Traffic Accident on San Jacinto Near Mckinney

February 3, 2008 - Houston police are investigating a fatal traffic accident on San Jacinto near McKinney about 11:55 p.m. on Monday (Feb. 2).

The identity of the deceased male is pending verification by the Harris County Medical Examiner’s Office.

HPD Vehicular Crimes Division Sergeant D.S. Runyan and Officer J. Lin reported:

The victim, believed to be homeless, was scuffling with another person at a bus stop, possibly because of some food the other person had.  When the victim could not get the food, he made a statement indicating he would let a bus run over him and then proceeded to lie in the street.  A short time later, a Metro bus traveling down the street ran over him.  The bus driver stated she did not see the man.

The male was pronounced dead at the scene, the result of a possible suicide.

The investigation is continuing.
