Autistic child killed while crossing service road

Posted: Updated:

An 11-year-old autistic child was killed after he tried to cross a service road in northwest Houston, police say.

Around 8 p.m. Wednesday, a car struck the child on the westbound feeder of the Katy Freeway near North Kirkwood, Houston Police say.

The child got away from his dad at a nearby apartment complex and began walking across the service road.  At one point, he got confused and tried to turn back, but it was too late.  A car struck him, stopping a short distance away.

An ambulance was taking the child to Texas Children's Hospital.  The child died sometime later.

Police are investigating.
