A man has died and a woman has been seriously injured after a hit-and-run at El Buho Bar in southeast Houston.

The subject incident occurred on the southeast side of Houston at El Buho Bar off Fuqua Street near Interstate 45, at around 2 a.m. Officials with the Houston Police Department’s Vehicular Crimes Division state that a black pickup truck was speeding through the bar parking lot when it struck a couple walking by.

The man, 32, succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. The woman, 27, was transported to a nearby hospital with a broken leg. She is reported to be in stable condition.

Police believe that the driver, believed to be a Hispanic male, was intoxicated at the time of the hit-and-run accident. Nearby witnesses reported that he had caused a disturbance in the parking lot prior to the incident.

Houston police are working to retrieve nearby surveillance video, and are asking the public to help identify the suspect involved in the El Buho Bar hit-and-run.
