Someone was performing CPR on the victim when firefighters arrived, but they left before police were able to get their information or if they were involved.

HOUSTON — A man walking along the South Freeway/Hwy 288 feeder near W Bellfort Ave was killed in a hit-and-run crash early Tuesday morning, according to Houston police.
