2 women hit, injured by car near Minute Maid Park in downtown Houston
HOUSTON, TX — Two women were hospitalized Tuesday night after a hit-and-run pedestrian crash near Minute Maid Park in downtown Houston, according to ABC13.
Houston Police said the incident took place at the intersection of Chartres Street and Texas Avenue, about a block away from the ballpark. It was first reported at 9:45 p.m., shortly after the Astros recorded a win over the Cleveland Guardians.
Preliminary details indicate a driver in a maroon Dodge Challenger was cutting in and out of traffic and honking their horn among the crowd of pedestrians when the vehicle struck the two women.
Both victims were rushed to an area hospital with injuries considered non-life-threatening and are expected to survive.
The driver failed to stop and render aid, but a number of witnesses were able to provide police with a partial license plate number. When located, the driver faces charges that include “failure to stop and render aid.”
Anyone who may have relevant information is encouraged to contact the Houston Police Department.
