HARRIS COUNTY, Texas (KTRK) -- A man was struck and killed early Sunday by a vehicle that took off after the crash in southwest Harris County, authorities said.

It happened around 4 a.m. in the 13500 block of Bissonnet Street near Royal Park Drive and Eldridge Parkway.

The man was walking eastbound along Bissonnet when he was hit, and the driver apparently never stopped, according to the Harris County Sheriff's Office.

Investigators later identified the man as Dave Brunson. He died at the scene.

Deputies did not have a clear description of the driver or vehicle involved in the crash but continued to look for it Sunday morning while investigators worked to determine the vehicle's make and model.

Brunson may have been walking in the middle lane of the road when he was hit, according to deputies with the HCSO Vehicular Crimes Division.
