Houston
Detectives are asking for the public's help finding two drivers who separately struck and killed a motorcyclist before fleeing the scene in southwest Houston.

The crash happened in the early morning hours of March 11 in the 6700 block of the Southwest Freeway, near Hillcroft Avenue. The motorcyclist was driving on the feeder road when a blue sedan struck the motorcycle.

The motorcyclist was knocked off into the middle of the road. That's when the victim was struck again by a dark-colored pickup truck, police said.

Both drivers who struck the motorcyclist fled the scene, police said. Now, with the help of Houston Crime Stoppers, detectives are hoping someone who knows about the crash will come forward.

Crime Stoppers is offering to pay a $5,000 reward to anyone who comes forward with information leading to the charge or arrest of one of the drivers. Tips can also be anonymous.

Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS (8477).
