Authorities identified the elderly man hit and killed Sunday night on the Northwest Side.

Floyd Van Hampton, 69, was pronounced dead by the Bexar County Medical Examiner. The accident happened around 11 p.m. when Hampton was walking across Babcock Road near Medical Drive. Police said Hampton was not using the crosswalk when he was stuck.

The driver never stopped, but was later found by police and admitted to officers that he had struck someone. Hampton was taken to the hospital in critical condition, but later died.

This was the second fatal hit-and-run crash Sunday night. Police said a suspected drunk driver killed another pedestrian in a crash along Callaghan Road.
