HOUSTON - Houston police are looking for the suspect who shot a driver causing him to crash in southwest Houston Wednesday night.

Investigators said the victim and a woman were sitting in a car at an apartment complex off of Woodfair Drive around 10:30 p.m. when a man walked up to the car and fired a shot at the driver.

Officials said the driver managed to hit the gas and drove a few miles away to a Valero station at the intersection of Woodfair Drive and Bissonnet Street.

As he pulled into the gas station, police said the driver lost consciousness while his foot was still on the pedal. He crashed his vehicle into a truck and then one of the gas pumps.

The Houston Fire Department transported the man to Ben Taub General Hospital in serious condition.

His female passenger, who is pregnant, was also hospitalized for shock.
