Police say the driver could be charged after the cyclist was killed in a crash at Westheimer in west Houston

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — A driver could be charged with hitting and killing a man on a bicycle in West Houston, police say.

Houston police said the bicyclist was attempting to cross the street in the 6100 block of Westheimer near Greenridge at around 10:15 p.m. when he was hit by the driver of a white sedan.

“According to witnesses, he drove across the roadway, which is incredibly dangerous,” said Sgt. David Rose. “We processed a lot of deaths on this particular stretch of Westheimer.”

Investigators are looking closely at what led to the fatal crash. Police said several witnesses gave different accounts of what happened.

“We get a lot of witness reports that are conflicting about exactly what happened here,” Rose said. “We want to know exactly what happened. The public prosecutor’s office comes to the scene of the crime because there may be criminal proceedings against the driver.”

The victim was taken to hospital after the accident but died within an hour, police said.

The driver was examined at the scene for DWI. Investigators don’t believe alcohol played a role, though charges may still exist.

Police described the victim as a Hispanic male in his 20s. His family told HPD he works at a local business near the crime scene.
