According to HPD, Tom and friends were seated on the curb in front of a car parked outside the museum, when the car was struck from behind by the driver.
Tom later died at Ben Taub Hospital.
The driver of the car was arrested, and there is no additional information.
Tom, you will be missed! You humor, vision and spirit will live on in those whom you inspired!
Below is a video interview just hours before the Saturday parade and his death.
Rest in Peace My Friend!
