Motorcyclist killed in hit-and-run
29-year-old woman arrested on intoxication manslaughter charge
A 50-year-old man who was killed early Thursday morning in a hit-and-run accident on the Northeast side has been identified as Guadalupe Baiz.
Police say 29-year-old Charlotte Herrera is the woman who hit him, and they say she drove away from the scene more than once.
It happened just after 4 a.m. at the intersection of Nacogdoches and Old Moss Road, just outside Loop 410.
When Marlin Hill drove his 18-wheeler down Nacogdoches this morning, Baiz had just been hit and was on the ground next to his crumpled 2000 Harley Davidson.
"Somebody laying in the road. You can't just drive by," Hill said.
But police say that's exactly what Herrera did.
Baiz was driving North on Nacogdoches when police say Herrera pulled out in front of him, causing him to crash into her Nissan Xterra.
Even though she took off, the damage to her SUV left a trail. Marks on the road went down to the next intersection, where police say Hererra U-turned then went right back by the scene.
Hill says Hererra almost hit Baiz a second time on her way back by.
"I (saw) him turn right and he went around the block, so now I don't know where he got and I heard him screech to a halt, " Hill said.
The marks on the road led police right to Herrera. She is being charged with intoxication assault and failure to stop and render aid.
As for the man who did stop, he says he knows he puts himself in danger every time he gets out of his truck, but he'd do it again.
"(I) always help somebody when I can," Hill said.
