(KTRK) HOUSTON, Texas Police believe the driver of the vehicle may not have have been aware of the guy who died after falling off.
According to eyewitness accounts, the guy seized the car as it was stopped at a red light.
He apparently managed to hang on for a few blocks before coming off on Thursday night in the Acres Homes neighborhood on the 9500 block of West Montgomery close to Ellington.
Following the man’s fall, the driver continued driving, maybe unaware that the man was hanging on the back, according to Houston police.
A bystander contacted 911 after noticing the man lying in the middle of the road.
He was sent to a local hospital, where he passed away later.
According to the police, they lack a description of the car that sped off.
In the vicinity, investigators were looking for CCTV footage.
