HOUSTON (KTRK) --Police received a call around 4:30 Sunday morning about a woman's body found on I-45 at Little York exit ramp.
Officers are investigating it as a hit and run.
"A Hispanic female was walking on the North Freeway at the 6900 block at West Little York exit ramp when she was struck by an unknown vehicle," said Sergeant Karl Harris with the Houston Police Department.
There are no known witnesses at this time.
About two blocks north of the accident, a tow truck driver discovered an abandoned car with the driver and passenger door open and the key still in the ignition.
The discovery was made around the time that the hit and run was reported.
Police are working to determine if the car belongs to the victim.
They say it is not the suspect's car because it did not sustain any front-end damage.
