A witness who did not want to be identified said she heard the crash, then saw a car slow down but the car did not stop. The woman who was hit died at the scene.
"I saw the car, I saw the car slow down, know that it hit something and would not stop," she said. "The car did not stop at all."
Investigators blocked the street during rush hour as they gathered evidence.
Harris County Sheriff's investigators say the suspect's vehicle will have damage to the front end and they are currently looking for the car. Vehicle debris at the scene indicates the vehicle color is silver and possibly a Toyota passenger vehicle.
"That is sad, that is very sad," the witness said. "It is too close to the holidays and it is very sad that someone would hit a person, kill a person and not stop or even turn around to see how that person is doing."
Sheriff's officials say the incident happened around 5:40 a.m. and conditions were very dark in the area at the time.
