A man was hit and killed by an SUV while trying to cross the Northwest Freeway in Northwest Harris County.

It happened late Saturday night near the 22600 block of Highway US 290.

The man, who's name hasn't been released, was attempting to cross the outbound lanes near Barker Cypress when he was hit by a silver 2004 Nissan Murano, officials said.

After the first hit, investigators said he was hit again by another car.

Emergency crews said the victim was dead by the time they arrived.

Authorities believe the victim may have been crossing the highway to get help after his vehicle stalled.
