Woman using walker killed in crosswalk by hit-and-run driver, Houston police say

Police are looking for a driver in a Lincoln sedan.

HOUSTON — A woman was struck and killed by a driver who then fled the scene early Wednesday on Houston’s south side.

It happened around 11:55 p.m. in the 5400 block of Selinsky at MLK, Houston police said.

Police believe the victim, a woman in her 50s who was using a walker, was in the crosswalk heading eastbound in the intersection. That’s when a late-2000s, black Lincoln MKZ sedan with a silver stripe on the side hit the woman and then kept going.

"According to witnesses, two vehicles appeared to have been racing southbound" at the time of the incident, police later stated in a press release.

The woman died at the scene.

Police believe the vehicle will have damage to the front passenger side.

Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD hit-and-run unit at 713-247-4072 or Houston Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
