HOUSTON, TX -- A 23-year-old man was hospitalized early last Thursday after being struck by a driver who was reportedly upset about a vehicle break-in in south Houston, reports ABC13.

Houston Police said the hit-and-run pedestrian crash occurred in the 3300 block of Kelton Street, several blocks north of Old Spanish Trail, on November 23, at around 2:15 a.m.

According to witnesses, the driver of a pickup truck claimed that someone had broken into his vehicle, and that he believed the valets from a neighboring club knew the thief.

Surveillance footage recovered from the scene shows the reportedly angry driver triking one of two people walking on Kelton Street. Authorities said the force of the contact caused the struck employee to go airborne for 90 feet before he came to rest in the front yard of a residence.

First responders rushed the victim to an area hospital where he is expected to make a recovery.

The driver, who fled the scene before authorities arrived, is still at large. At this time, the fleeing vehicle has only been described as a large pickup truck with a light bar affixed at the top.

Anyone who may have relevant information is urged to call the Houston Police Department's Major Assault Unit at 713-308-1100.
