Wednesday at the intersection of Bellaire Boulevard and Fondren Road in Houston, a hit and run driver T-boned a woman’s car and then attempted to flee. The woman had her two children in the back seat of the T-boned vehicle at the time of the crash.
Two heroic tow truck drivers who witnessed the crash followed the hit and run driver and helped the mother and her children at the accident scene. The woman and her two children were also hospitalized after the serious accident. One tow truck driver mentioned that the suspect ran the light.
The hit and run suspect exited his vehicle after being followed and ran away on foot, but was arrested on Moonmist Drive. The hit and run suspect was given oxygen at the scene before being hospitalized. Oddly, the suspect reportedly had a U.S. flag neatly folded in the back seat of his vehicle.
