Deputies say the woman was crossing the street when the driver of a red 1997 Honda CRV hit her.
In surveillance video obtained by ABC13, the driver is seen pulling into a nearby parking lot shortly after the impact.
Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office Lt. Ryan Skelton told ABC13 the driver took off moments later.
"There was a car that followed the Honda to the parking lot and was able to get us a license plate," said Skelton.
The victim was described as an elderly white female. Skelton believes the woman lives in the area and may not have been walking on a cross walk.
Deputies located the driver of the Honda around 9:45 p.m.
Vehicle located 8000 Cook Rd. The driver is being interviewed. https://t.co/EVOVCzkaCD— FBCSO Texas (@FBCSO) January 18, 2020
Skelton said this is the second deadly crash in about a week.
"We had one right down the road," he said. "It's dark and it's busy, this particular stretch, it's pretty dark."
