'God-awful screaming.' Neighbors describe pedestrian being dragged by driver overnight

HOUSTON – A man was killed in a hit-and-run wreck in Northwest Harris County in the early hours of Monday morning, according to Harris County Precinct 4 Constable Mark Herman. 

The first report of the wreck was made at about 2:30 a.m. near the intersection of Cypresswood Drive and York Minster Drive near the Cypress Creek Christian Church and Klein High School. Officials did not release any other information about the man's death or a possible suspect but neighbors are traumatized. 

"There is a trail of blood going down the street and I would like to know why," neighbor Russell Shelton told KPRC. "My daughter was crying from it when she learned that he was dragged right by her car," said Shelton.

Officials washed away the trail of blood Monday morning which was about 150 yards long. Disturbing surveillance footage from several nearby homes revealed the trail of blood was caused by a truck dragging the victim after hitting them.

"You see a truck go by real slow and you are hearing screaming the whole time," said neighbor Chris Dancy. 

Two neighbors say moments before the hit-and-run, they heard a car crash.

"Next thing I heard was some God-awful screaming, yelling," said neighbor Pam McCombs. "What that person did to another human being is despicable there is no excuse for that," she said. 

The suspect vehicle is a newer model dark gray Toyota Tundra truck with damage to its front end. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Harris County Precinct 4 Constable's Office.
