A deadly crash that took place in northeast Houston on Wednesday, June 10, left two people dead. The deceased include a woman and a three-year-old boy.
According to the details shared by the authorities, the incident occurred around noon on Wednesday. It happened when a driver ran a red light and ran into a collision prompting a multi-vehicle crash. The vehicle that ran the red light was traveling on Lee Road when it ran the red light. It was identified as a Buick Park Avenue.
As the Buick ran the red light, a tractor-trailer crashed into it. The tractor-trailer was traveling on the North Sam Houston Parkway East service road at the time. After colliding with the tractor-trailer, the Buick then hit another two vehicles. These include a second truck and a car that was parked in front of a gas station nearby.
The Buick had three occupants in it when it ran into the accident. These included the driver, a 25-year-old woman and a 3-year-old boy. All three occupants sustained injuries. The driver of the Buick is reported to be stable and not in critical condition anymore. The woman and the child were also rushed to a nearby hospital. However, they failed to recover from their injuries and were pronounced dead.
It is not clear at this point whether any drivers or passengers in the other vehicles were injured. Houston Police Department continues to investigate the incident. For now, the police have not filed any formal charges pending the conclusion of the investigations. According to HDP, it is also not clear for now what the relationship is between the Buick driver and the two deceased passengers. Given the negligence of the Buick driver in running the red light, it is likely that formal charges in this case will be filed against him.
