WOOD COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - A dented hood marks the place where Jacob Burrell's life would end.

A person close to investigation confirms that the white SUV involved in Tuesday's deadly hit and run crash has been found.

Jacob lived less than mile from where he was hit. He was walking home from martial arts class, wearing all black.

His instructor, Leslie Yager says Jacob's death is a huge loss. "This was a good young man and it's really terrible that this happened," said Yager.

Those who loved Jacob are amazed as to how someone could just drive away, leaving Jacob in the road.

"This person thought about themself and fled the scene so they wouldn't get in trouble," said Yager.
