Family of woman killed in hit-and-run celebrates her life, asks driver to come forward

HOUSTON – The family of a woman who died in a hit-and-run crash Saturday night is celebrating her life and asking the driver who fled to come forward. 

What happened

Kay Abbas and Raye Wilson were riding on a motorcycle on Holcombe near the South Freeway when police say a dark-colored GMC SUV or Suburban ran a red light, hit them and kept going.

Abbas survived with only minor cuts and bruises.

“Physically, I'm banged up but mentally, there's some stuff I've got to live with the rest of life,” Abbas said. “Everybody in here is helping me with that, and I appreciate that.”

The Wilson family

By everybody, Abbas means the extended Wilson family, who hope the hit-and-run driver will come forward. 

But at their home Monday night, they celebrated Wilson’s 31 years of life; especially her father, Ray Wilson.
