Hit and Run Victim Still in Critical Condition, Police Seek Suspect

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

There have been no arrests in the city's latest hit and run accident, but police say they are getting close, especially after releasing pictures of some of the evidence left behind.

The accident took place last Monday and left 52-year old Aldolfo "Rudy" Espinoza fighting for his life. He was hit while trying to help another motorist. The person behind the wheel of the truck that hit him may soon be facing some serious charges.

Roland Martinez, the victim's brother-in-law, was shown the evidence by investigators and was allowed to take pictures of the passenger-side mirror of the truck that struck Espinoza. It was critical evidence, showing part numbers and identification information that will help law enforcement track down who owns the 2001 Dodge 1500 truck.

In the meantime, Espinoza underwent a fourth surgery and remains in critical condition at Christus Spohn Memorial Hospital.

Espinoza was hit late at night on the Crosstown Expressway. He was helping a woman whose vehicle had run out of gas. His family is once again asking that the personal responsible come forward.

"I just hope that the person that caused this horrific accident, that caused this accident would come forward, you know," Martinez said. "You know, we forgive them, he or she, because we really don't know who it was. Come forward because it's going to be on your conscience, and it is in your conscience right now as we speak."

Accident investigators are looking for a 1994-2001 Dodge 1500 truck, with its passenger-side mirror broken off. If you have any information, call investigators at 361-886-2690.
