Two Houston Astros fans were hurt after a night celebrating a historic win ended with a hit-and-run crash.

A search is underway for the driver accused of hitting the two women just feet away from Minute Maid Park at 9:45 p.m. Tuesday.

The street was packed with fans leaving the game when the driver allegedly sped through the intersection of Chartres Street and Texas Avenue, just a block away from the ballpark, and hit the two women.

Witnesses told Houston police the driver was in a Maroon Dodge Challenger and was weaving in and out of traffic, honking at people, just before the crash.

Cameras were rolling on fans’ reaction to ‘Stros star Framber Valdez’s no-hitter in a 2-0 win over the Cleveland Guardians, when terrified screams filled the air.

Video from the scene shows a crowd of Astros fans gathered around the women at the intersection, trying to render aid.

The driver did not stop, but police said witnesses were able to provide a partial license plate number. The driver is facing charges of failure to stop and render aid.

HPD said the two women were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. They are expected to be OK.

Anyone with information about the driver is urged to contact HPD.
