Cypresswood, TX – Cedrick Amos Injured in Pedestrian Accident on Tomball Pkwy
Cypresswood, TX (April 28, 2019) On the morning of April 27th, a pedestrian accident happened in a YMCA parking lot at about 10:40 a.m.
The reports state that a 24-year-old named Devon Amos was fighting with his 42-year-old father who has been identified as Cedrick Amos. The son then got in a car and ran his father over. He then sped around the parking lot and proceeded to run his father over again. After the second time, he fled the scene. The accident happened on Tomball Parkway.
When emergency crews arrived, they tended to the father after finding him seriously injured. The police are still searching for the son, but so far, they found the vehicle he was in on FM 1960.
We hope Cedrick Amos fully recovers from his injuries.
Pedestrian Accidents in Texas
In 2015, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that almost 4,000 pedestrians were seriously injured after getting run over by vehicles in Texas. Most pedestrian accidents are caused by drivers not paying attention to the road and accidentally striking them. However, there are some pedestrian accidents that occur due to aggressive driving. Whenever drivers strike a pedestrian and flee the scene, it’s because they don’t want to face the consequences of their actions, especially if they know they’re at fault.
