A seven year old girl and her mother were leaving the soccer fields at Bear Creek Park, Texas, late one recent evening. As they made their way back to their car, the child ran into the road and was struck by a passing SUV. According to the girl’s mother, the automobile appeared to be a silver Isuzu Trooper or Mitsubishi Montero.
After hitting the girl, the driver of the SUV reportedly stopped a short way down the road, and a woman got out of the passenger’s side of the SUV and walked back to the girl and her mother to see if the child was injured. After seeing that the girl was clearly injured and lying in the road, she walked back to the SUV and got in. The vehicle then drove off without anyone offering their identity or any further assistance.
The girl was flown by medical helicopter to Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital sometime later; her injuries are said to be critical. Police are looking for any information on the driver or passenger of the SUV. The female passenger is described as a slim Caucasian with a mole on her left cheek. She was wearing a black baseball cap.
Anyone with information about the accident is asked to call the Houston Police Department Hit and Run Unit at 713-247-4065.
