Houston, TX (2/20/2020) – A Houston man is now dead after a deadly hit-and-run accident occurred Wednesday night in north Houston.

The incident occurred around 7:30 a.m. at Rittenhouse Street and Airline Drive when he was hit by a speeding pickup truck. He was crossing the street at the time of a street race between two vehicles

The man was killed at the scene. His body came to a rest under a different car waiting to turn at a traffic light.

Said driver remained at the scene.

Police located the pickup truck and arrested the driver.

Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.

Accidents that involve extensive injuries are encouraged to contact legal counsel due to the amount of damages that come from an accident that causes such fatalities. An attorney can deal with insurance adjusters for you, negotiate settlements, and represent your best interests if a lawsuit is needed. Because this accident resulted in four different people becoming injured, multiple claims will be filed and it’s necessary to hire an attorney to help with those claims.

 If you or a loved one were involved in a car accident, immediately contact a legal expert to help you evaluate your options. Call car accident attorneys Sutliff & Stout at (713) 987-7111 or send us an email to discuss your car accident injury case.
