The San Marcos Police Department is seeking assistance identifying the driver of a vehicle involved in a hit-and-run crash that resulted in the death of a pedestrian. The crash occurred Wednesday, June 14 before 1 a.m. in the 1100 block of State Highway 123. The pedestrian, identified 69-year-old Lenard Green Coleman of Nixon, TX, was struck twice by two separate vehicles.
Based on evidence and witness statements, detectives determined that a delivery truck first struck Coleman in the outbound lanes. The driver of the delivery truck did not stop to render aid. The driver has been identified but has not yet been charged.
Following the initial collision, a silver SUV came from Ebony Street, turned left on SH 123, and struck Coleman while traveling inbound toward San Marcos. The driver of the SUV did not stop to render aid. San Marcos Police believe the driver lives in the neighborhood where the crash occurred.
Coleman was pronounced deceased at the scene by Hays County Justice of the Peace Maggie H. Moreno. Coleman’s next of kin has been notified.
SMPD is asking the public for any information that can help identify the driver of the SUV. Anyone with information should contact Sergeant Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org.
