"The male had severe head injuries and trauma," Gonzalez said. "It's still being investigated whether he he was hit by several vehicles or just one."

At some point, a female driver showed up at the scene and was taken into custody.  

Gonzalez said she faces a possible charge of failure to stop and render aid.

Southbound W. Military Drive was shut down between Highway 90 and Luke Drive for several hours during the on-site investigation.
