Family shows up at Hwy 6 crash scene where loved one was hit

A woman who was walking home from her job at the Salvation Army died after she was hit by a car while crossing Highway 6 in west Harris County.

The crash happened in the 8400 block of Highway 6 near Beechnut at around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday.

According to Harris County Sheriff's Office, 43-year-old Lisa Thi Flaherty was attempting to cross the roadway when she was hit by a white Toyota. She usually worked at the Salvation Army Super Store during the day but Tuesday night, she was covering for an employee on vacation.

Flaherty was taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

"She was a giving girl. She loved everybody," Chuck Flaherty, Lisa's father said.

Officials say the driver in his mid 20s remained at the scene and was cooperating with authorities. They don't believe alcohol or speed were factors in the crash.

An official at the scene stated the woman's family showed up when she didn't arrive home. Flaherty's father told ABC13 she was covering a night shift for a coworker who was off that evening.

An investigation is ongoing.
