Pasadena police are asking for the public's help in finding a hit-and-run driver who knocked a pickup off the road on Red Bluff Road last weekend and left a 12-year-old girl and her grandmother to die.
The girl, Cloey Jae Bryan of Needville, had been visiting her aunt and uncle in Seabrook and was on her way to spend the night with her grandmother in Pasadena.
The Houston Chronicle's Peggy O'Hare writes about what happened as their pickup approached Fairmont Parkway on Red Bluff Road, just north of Genoa Red Bluff:
"As the two headed north on Red Bluff Road just before 11 p.m. last Saturday, a hit-and-run driver knocked Pamela Gwynn Bryan's Ford F-150 pickup off the road, causing it to flip over and ultimately killing them.
When the other vehicle reached a bridge down the road, just south of the Pasadena Rodeo Grounds, the driver stopped, got out and looked back at the wreckage. Then he or she got back into the car and drove away, said Casey Bush, a 32-year-old Bacliff firefighter who witnessed the crash and the driver's actions.
