Socorro, TX (KTSM) — UPDATE: The family of the man who is in serious condition identifies him as Pedro Mendez, Jr. They said Mendez is in a coma at UMC and has internal bleeding of the brain. They say the two other people who were with him are his friends. They claim the truck driver who hit the three men, drove off. The driver's girlfriend came back to identify the driver. We are working with authorities to confirm this information.
Three people are injured, including one critically, after a driver hit them in Horizon City. The El Paso County Sheriff's Office said it happened around 2 am, Sunday in the McDonald's driveway off of I-10 and Horizon.
At this point, deputies could not tell us what happened. But, deputies tell us investigators were combing the scene for evidence for several hours. They have not released the identities those involved.
Deputies are investigating and we expect to get more information Monday morning.
