3 people hit by cars in separate incidents on 'busy' Friday night, sheriff says

HARRIS COUNTY, Texas (KTRK) -- At least three people were all hit by cars in separate incidents in what Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez is calling a "busy" Friday night.

One incident involved a woman who died after being hit near Cypress Station, authorities say.

It happened in the 100 block of FM 1960 W around 7:30 p.m.



Investigators with the department's vehicular crimes division were on the way to that scene, according to the sheriff's office.

Meanwhile, Gonzalez reported a separate crash on Twitter at 3299 Crosby Freeway near Krenek Road in which two people were also hit by a vehicle that fled the scene.



One of the two victims later died. A Harris County captain said the suspect, who is 87 years old, was found two miles away.

"[He or she] seemed confused and was transported for medical care," wrote the captain on Twitter.
