SPRING, TX Harris County Sheriff’s Office deputies say a driver intentionally ran over a group of people after a fight outside a popular north Harris County dance hall Saturday morning, killing one woman and injuring three other people.
It happened around 2:30am at Big Texas Dance Hall & Saloon on the North Freeway near Holzwarth in Spring.
Deputies said a confrontation erupted, and then someone jumped into a black pickup truck and drove into four people. The driver then fled the scene.
One woman died at the scene, we’re told. Paramedics loaded up three other victims — a man and two women — and took them to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Police still trying to figure out why it happened, and who might have done it.
“It was reported that somebody had been run over; several people run over. At this point, we have one deceased; three injured,” HCSO Sgt. Felipe Rivera said.
Detectives aren’t sure what started the whole thing. According to posters hung at the dance hall, Texas country musician Stoney LaRue performed Friday night.
“From what we understand, nothing happened inside the dance hall. It happened outside, the confrontation between two parties,” Rivera said.
According to HCSO, all four victims appear to be in their 20s.
The young lady that died was a Allie Rodriguez, 20, a Caney Creek High graduate from Grangerland. She also worked at Papas on the Lake.
He boyfriend suffered a broken hand. Still no word on the others. Late Saturday evening Harris County Detectives have arrested Tito Estrada Juarez and charged him with the murder.
