Hit-and-Run Leaves Two Drivers Wanted
The Houston Police Department is searching for two drivers who were involved in the case of a woman found dead near the 900 block of the North Freeway. The victim has been identified as 38-year-old Frances Morales, mother of six children. According to police investigations, the 38-year-old was killed by either falling or having been pushed from a moving SUV onto the freeway. Her boyfriend was driving the SUV at the time of the incident, and is one of the people the police are hunting. After the incident, her boyfriend told family and friends she jumped. According to Morales’ friend, Rebecca Vasquez, it is likely that Morales’ live in boyfriend had something to do with the woman’s death, citing that the man, “…constantly beat her.” Vasquez said the man claimed that Morales simply jumped out the vehicle on the freeway while it was going 60 miles per hour. Police said Morales’ boyfriend never stopped and neither did the female driver behind him who ran over Morales’ body. Morales’ family believes there is a crime her saying that Morales’ would never have abandoned her six children. Neighbors corroborate this saying that they did hear the two fighting before their dinner plans on the night of the incident. Police are now looking for Morales’ boyfriend, Ernesto Moncada, for questioning. Moncada’s vehicle is described as a white Chevy Trailblazer, with the license plate number of CKF 1159. Police are also looking for the female driver who hit Morales and who was driving a White Ford Explorer. Anyone with information in this case or on the identities of the wanted drivers is urged to contact the HPD Hit and Run Unit at 713-247-4065 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS. It is clear that there was a crime committed in this woman’s death. No matter what the cause of the accident, both drivers absolutely should have stopped their vehicles after someone fell out or after hit someone. For the woman who hit this mother, when she is finally caught will likely face that of hit and run. In addition, she will also potentially face the charge of failure to render aid. Both are considered very serious charges in the state of Texas.
