What kind of a person would hit another person with their vehicle and then simply drive away and not look back?
That is exactly what happened in a hit-and-run collision that tragically ended in the death of a motorcyclist early Saturday in Crosby.
According to Harris County Sheriff’s Office investigators, the accident happened at approximately 3:10 p.m. when the driver of a 1998 Chevrolet Malibu traveling northbound on Lindstrom Road failed to stop at a stop sign.
The driver began a left turn to head westbound on U.S. 90 just as Clay Schreckenbach, 27, who was on a blue 2016 Suzuki motorcycle was traveling in the same direction.
Schreckenbach’s motorcycle rear-ended the Chevrolet. The driver of the Malibu did not stop. Emergency crews arrived at and found Schreckenbach and pronounced him dead at the scene of the crash.
Law enforcement did find the Chevrolet Malibu parked at a nearby trailer park.
Authorities have not identified the hit-and-run driver and they remain at large. Getting into an accident involving a hit and run driver can feel very much like a personal attack. To leave another person to die is not only heartless; it’s also against the law.
It may take a while to find out just who may have been responsible for this motorcyclist’s death. Forensic science is better now than it was even a few years ago. Clues left at the scene can be used to narrow down who may have committed such a crime.
