A Texas grandfather has died after he tried to stop a tow truck driver from repossessing his SUV on Thursday, his distraught family have revealed. 

Alberto Nduli, 68, confronted the driver Oscar Lee Harrison Jr at 7:20am yesterday, after the elderly motorist was awoken by a neighbor warning that 'something was happening' to his truck.  

During the confrontation Nduli is said to have jumped atop the hood of his Lincoln Navigator, which had been winched to the towing vehicle, in a bid to stop Harrison from driving away.

Regardless of the 68-year-old’s protests, police say Harrison switched on his engine and drove away at speed, knocking the grandfather off balance and causing him to fall to the ground below, suffering a fatal blow to his head.

Harrison, 33, allegedly carried on driving instead of stopping to assist the ailing Nduli. He has since been arrested and charged with failure to stop and render aid.

‘[Harrison] didn’t ensure that this person was going to get the proper aid,’ said Sean Teare, head of the Harris County District Attorney's Office Vehicular Crimes Division. ‘He simply took the car and dropped it off, and that’s unacceptable.’
