HPD Vehicular Crimes Division Sergeant D. Griffiths and Officer T. Smith reported:
According to witnesses, the male was seen lying on the ground near the above address. It is believed he grabbed the rear of a vehicle of unknown make or model while it was stopped at a traffic light. The male either let go or lost his grip from the vehicle and struck the concrete pavement at the above address. Houston Fire Department paramedics transported the male to Memorial Hermann Greater Heights Hospital where he was pronounced deceased.
It is possible the driver was not aware the male was riding on the back end of the vehicle.
Anyone with information on the vehicle or identity of the driver being sought for questioning is urged to contact the HPD Hit and Run Unit at 713-247-4072.
