Man Killed by Alleged Drunk Driver

After Friday night’s Eras Tour concert in Houston, Jacob Lewis was walking to his car when he was hit by Allen Bryant. Upon exiting Taylor Swift’s event in Houston on Friday night, a man was fatally struck and murdered by a suspected intoxicated motorist.

A GoFundMe page states that on their way back to Houston from Taylor Swift’s Era Tour, 20-year-old Jacob Lewis and his sister’s car broke down. “Jacob at once started to push the car when he was tragically hit and killed by a drunk driver,” according to the fundraising site.

Alan Bryant, 34, was named as the suspected drunk driver who fled the scene by local television station KHOU 11. He is currently being held in the Harris County Jail on charges of failing to stop and help when help was needed.
