HPD investigates fatal pedestrian crash on I-45 service road in Houston’s Northside/Northline

HOUSTON, TX — An argument inside an Uber Thursday night led to a man exiting the vehicle and being fatally hit by another car on a feeder road in north Houston, reports Click2Houston.

The incident unfolded on the Interstate 45 (North Freeway) service road at Little York Road, in the city’s Northside/Northline area.

According to an early investigation, the man was a passenger in the ride-share vehicle when he became involved in a dispute with its driver. He allegedly asked the driver to stop the vehicle so he could exit. As he attempted to cross the feeder road, he was struck by another vehicle.

The male pedestrian, whose identity has not been publicly shared, died from his injuries at the scene.

Authorities said the striking vehicle failed to stop immediately after the crash but that its driver came back to the scene an hour later.

No pending charges have been reported as of this writing.
