HOUSTON—An elderly man who slipped away from his caregivers was struck and killed by a motorist when he wandered into the street early Monday.

The man, who suffered from mental illness, was struck by a Ford Explorer on Bammel N Houston, just north of North Sam Houston Parkway, around 4 a.m. He died at the scene.

The SUV driver, who did not see the man in time to avoid him, stopped and waited for help to arrive.

Harris County Sheriff’s deputies are investigating.
