HOUSTON -

Houston police are looking for the driver of a white SUV responsible for chasing a man down and running him over Tuesday night.

Homicide detectives said 50-year-old Clyde Hadnot was walking in southeast Houston around 9 p.m. heading down Northdale Street near Bellfort Street when witnesses said he noticed a white SUV nearby.

Police said Hadnot must have recognized the vehicle, because once he saw it, he turned around and took off running in the opposite direction.

Witnesses said Hadnot ran through a small field and the SUV followed him. The victim tripped and fell in the field, and the SUV caught up with him.

Police said the vehicle ran over Hadnot, and then reversed and backed over him again before driving off.

Investigators have not determined why the driver pursued the man and killed Hadnot.

Police are looking for the white SUV with partial Texas license plates of 82G.

Anyone with information about this incident should call the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
