Son says hit-and-run driver sped up before striking, killing mother

HARRIS COUNTY -by Larry Seward/KHOU 11 News and www.khou.com

 

A mother was killed in a hit-and-run incident near Channelview, deputies said late Wednesday.

 

The suspect later turned himself in to authorities.

 

It happened after 8 p.m. on Woodforest Boulevard at Grassmont Street, north of I-10 East.

 

Deputies with the Harris County Sheriffs Office said the mother was crossing Woodforest with her son, who is in his 20s, when the incident occurred. The son told deputies he made it across fine, but he turned around to see a pickup truck speeding up and hitting his mother.

 

The trucks driver sped away as the mom died at the scene. Deputies said debris from the truck was left in the roadway.

 

"The only description I have right now is a blue Dodge 1500 quad cab, possibly between 2000 and 2004," said Deputy D. Wilkie.

 

After news reports of the woman's death, the suspect turned himself in to authorities on Thursday morning. Deputies did not release his identity, nor did they say what charges he would face, if any.
