Tragic accident that occurred on October 1 in Houston, Texas. A 2-year-old boy was tragically struck and killed by an alleged intoxicated hit-and-run motorist, 22-year-old Rene Alfredo Alvarado Lopez. Lopez was operating a Dodge Ram pickup truck in an apartment complex parking lot at 8400 Nairn Street when he hit a child and fled the scene. Sadly the 2-year-old died at the scene. A short distance from the scene Alvarado Lopez was stopped by witnesses and held until authorities arrived.
