A former anchor for KHOU 11 News has confirmed his niece was killed in a hit-and-run over the weekend.

Vicente Arenas said Patricia Rodriguez was crossing Fondren late Saturday when she was hit. The driver didn't stop.

"I just don't know how anyone could hit a person and leave them to die in the street," Arenas posted on Facebook.

Police say it happened around 10:30 p.m. in the 12900 block of Fondren.

Rodriguez was rushed to a hospital but she didn't survive.
