Harris County Sheriff's Deputies have arrested two men suspected of being involved in a fatal hit-and-run accident on FM 1960 early this morning.

The accident happened shortly after midnight near the intersection of FM 1960 and Kuykendahl Road. According to investigators, a man believed to be in his late 30s or early 40s was crossing Kuykendahl when he was hit by a red Hyundai with two men inside.

The man who was hit was pronounced dead at the scene.

The two occupants of the vehicle fled on foot, but were eventually tracked down by deputies with police dogs. One of the suspects was treated at the scene for dog bites.

The suspects face charges of fleeing the scene, and the driver, if identified, could face a DWI charge.

Just yesterday, we reported on another hit-and-run wreck in northwest Harris County in which witnesses led police to the suspect.
