HARRIS COUNTY, TX — A man died early Friday after being struck by a vehicle near the Springfield Estates area in north Baytown, according to Harris County Sheriff’s Office.
The collision occurred in the 8500 block of Garth Road near E. Wallisville Road late Thursday, shortly before 11:53 p.m.
Investigators say the victim was walking north on the raised grassy median dividing the northbound and southbound lanes of Garth Road when he turned west, entering the road’s inside northbound lane.
