Police are asking anyone who may have information about this crash, or the driver involved, to call STI at (915) 212-4080.


A pedestrian was sent to the hospital with life-threatening injuries following a crash early Thursday morning, police said.

ABC-7’s photographer reports seeing a body covered with a white sheet that appeared to have bloodstains, but authorities have not yet confirmed any deaths. The collision happened at Mesa St. and Cincinnati Ave. at around 2 a.m.

A few hours after the pedestrian was struck, police found a red car that had been abandoned near Cincinnati and Clayton, less than a mile away from where the pedestrian was hit.

The car’s windshield was broken and its hood damaged. Investigators were at the scene all day, taking photographs and dusting the car for fingerprints. Police, however, have not confirmed if the vehicle struck the pedestrian at Mesa and Cincinnati.
