No charges are expected to be filed against a driver who hit a man in east Houston. The driver of an SUV hit that pedestrian around 2am on the outbound feeder road of the East Freeway near Uvalde. Houston police say the man was either trying to cross the feeder or just simply walking along it.

He was killed instantly.

That stretch of roadway is poorly lit, investigators say, and it's likely the driver simply didn't see the man.
