A man trying to outrun traffic on Tomball Parkway was hit and killed overnight.

It happened just before 8pm Friday in the 11700 block of Highway 249 at Upland Willow near West Mount Houston in north Harris County.

Deputies said Vinubhai Amin was trying to cross the freeway and dodge traffic, but he ended up getting hit by multiple vehicles.

According to officials, a southbound Ford F-150 struck him first, throwing him into northbound traffic. He was then hit by three other vehicles, authorities said.

Officials at the scene told us some of the vehicles stopped, but others kept going. Amin, who was wearing dark clothes in a dimly-lit area of the roadway at the time, died at the scene.

There's no word if anyone will face any criminal charges. The accident remains under investigation.
