Harris County Sheriff's Office investigators and Crime Stoppers needs your help to find the person behind a deadly hit and run in Atascocita last month. Back on October 20 at around 1:45pm, investigators say Anthony Brown was driving a Jeep Cherokee near the 6500 block of Atascocita Road. A grey four-door car, possibly a Toyota Matrix, pulled out of a driveway and onto the westbound lane.

The car pulled into Brown's path, causing him to travel into oncoming traffic. Investigators say when he tried to get back into his lane, he lost control and ended up hitting a tree and flipping his car.

Brown was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital, where he died nine days later from his injuries.

If anyone witnessed the accident or if anyone has any information on the other car they are urged to call Crime Stoppers.
