Pregnant woman crossing street injured in hit-and-run crash

HOUSTON – A pregnant woman was injured Tuesday when she was hit by a vehicle while crossing a southwest Houston street, and the vehicle did not stop.

The crash was reported about 9:20 p.m. on Fountain View Drive near the Southwest Freeway.

Houston police said the woman was crossing Fountain View Drive outside a crosswalk when she was hit by a vehicle. 

The woman suffered a broken leg and bruising on her face. She was taken to a hospital for treatment and was listed in stable condition. Officials said the woman’s unborn child was not harmed.
