Fourteen-year-old Ruekwe Nicole Tobor — a ninth grade student at Cypress Lakes High School — was embroiled in a heated argument with her parents on Monday around 6:45 p.m. when she stormed from her home near Barker-Cypress Road. Deputies say that the evening's heavy rain showers made for dangerous conditions and poor visibility.
"I don’t know how anybody could not know they hit her."
Tobor, who was reportedly wearing dark clothing, was struck by an unknown motorist as she ran across the busy thoroughfare at River Sage Drive. As she lay on the pavement, several other vehicles hit her as well . . . Not a single one of the drivers stopped to render aid.
Driving with her mother and 3-month-old baby, a witness named Denise (she only wished to provide her first name) passed by the horrific scene and finally rushed to help.
"Even when I was pulled across the lane, people would go around the front of my car and hit her," she tells KHOU Ch. 11. "I don’t know how anybody could not know they hit her."
Denise is pleading with drivers to turn themselves into authorities, and says incident continues to haunt her. "I don’t feel like I did enough," she explains. "I don’t want her family to think there wasn’t anyone with her when she went."
