HOUSTON – A good Samaritan is recovering after being injured during a hit-and-run crash on I-45.

Louis Morales told KPRC 2 that he was helping an older couple who had just got into a crash when a driver hit him and drove away.

“The guy was severely hurt on his left side, so I was standing at his door trying to keep him awake and I called the cops,” Morales said.

Morales was left with several broken bones and a lot of unanswered questions.

Morales said he was just trying to help, but now he has to undergo rehab to learn how to walk again. He said he’s in a lot of pain.

“It’s mainly from the screws in my leg and the operation that I had. I have 12 screws and a titanium plate,” he said. “I wasn’t able to identify the guy.”

Morales said the driver of the vehicle was driving about 60 mph when the vehicle came towards him.

“The only thing I could think of was to run towards the HOV lane and jump out of the way right before I thought he was close, and he clipped me. He spun me around, that’s when I scrapped my arms, face, hands and fingers,” Morales said.
