On Friday morning, 58-year-old Brenda Ball described as a deaf woman was killed after an auto-pedestrian crash in her northeast Houston neighborhood.
The fatal hit-and-run crash took place in the 9000 block of Shreveport Boulevard. The preliminary investigation revealed that the driver of a white Nissan Altima was traveling at a high rate of speed and was trying to overtake a black Kia Forte. Just then, the Nissan driver collided with the Kia. The force of the crash caused the white vehicle to then hit the woman on the side of the street.
The Nissan driver reportedly ran from the scene on foot, covered in blood. The suspect is being described only as a Hispanic male. Reports further added that a white vehicle was in a ditch on the side of a road and the vehicle’s windshield seemed to be smashed in. Officers shut down the 9000 block of Shreveport Boulevard as crews worked at the scene.
The crash remains under investigation.
