Man dies weeks after pedestrian crash on Mesa Dr in NE Houston

HOUSTON, TX — A 77-year-old man succumbed to injuries suffered in a pedestrian crash Tuesday, January 9, in northeast Houston, according to the Houston Police Department.

The fatal incident occurred in the 9400 block of Mesa Drive at around 9:45 a.m.

A preliminary investigation indicates that a black Chevrolet Tahoe was making a turn onto southbound Mesa Drive from westbound Tidwell Road when the vehicle hit the man, who was on foot and crossing eastbound across the roadway.

Authorities said the driver failed to stop and render aid to the male pedestrian.

First responders rushed the man to Memorial Hermann – Texas Medical Center. The HPD confirmed that the victim was pronounced deceased last Friday, January 26, more than two weeks later.

At this time, the HPD’s Vehicular Crimes Division continues to investigate and search for the fleeing driver. Anyone with relevant information is asked to reach out to the department’s Hit and Run Unit at 713-247-4072. Anonymous calls can also be placed with Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
