HARRIS COUNTY, Texas (KTRK) -- Authorities are searching for answers about what happened to a man found dead Wednesday morning in a busy area of northwest Harris County.

Shortly before 8:15 a.m., ABC13 learned of a deadly incident that the Harris County Sheriff's Office described at the time as a deadly hit-and-run crash at 3200 W. Greens Road near Veterans Memorial.

According to the sheriff's office's initial information, a driver hit a pedestrian at the intersection, then left the scene.

But after investigating further, officials now say that it's unclear if the man was hit by a car as they found surveillance footage from a nearby storage unit that indicates something else may have happened.

The video shows the man walking down the street, and then eventually collapsing where first responders found him.

Capt. Anthony McConnell with HCSO's Vehicular Crimes Division told ABC13 that from the footage, it looks like the man tried to walk down the busy intersection, possibly to get help.

A driver called 911.

At first glance, McConnell said it did not appear that the man had serious wounds, though he may have internal injuries.

Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff's office.

Editor's Note: An earlier version of this report said that the man was killed by a driver who left the scene. That information was according to the Harris County Sheriff's Office's Vehicular Crimes Division. We have since updated the story to reflect the latest updates from officials.
