Pedestrian killed in hit-and-run on Gulf Freeway in Greater Eastwood

Houston, TX – A man was killed early this morning in a hit-and-run on the Gulf Freeway in southeast Houston, reports Fox29.

According to police, the man was driving down I-45  near where it meets with South Lockwood Drive while arguing with his girlfriend who was in the passenger seat. The girlfriend then allegedly pulled on the vehicle’s steering wheel causing the car to collide with a concrete barrier. The driver stepped out of the vehicle into the roadway where he was struck by a pickup truck whose driver fled the scene.

The car was then struck by another vehicle as it was resting in the roadway.

The man hit by the pickup truck was declared dead at the scene by paramedics.

It is unclear if the girlfriend is facing charges.
