HOUSTON – A woman was in custody after a man was killed in a hit-and-run wreck outside a bar in near downtown Houston early Sunday.

Rebecca Bowman, 19, was charged with intoxication manslaughter and failure to stop and render aid.

According to police, a man walked out of a bar in the 4100 block of Washington around 1:40 a.m. and was standing in between two vehicles when he was struck by an SUV.
