HOUSTON, TX — A single-car crash early last Thursday, November 23, in southeast Houston claimed the life of a 42-year-old woman and injured two other people, one critically, according to the Houston Police Department.
The fatal accident happened in the 10600 block of Martin Luther King Boulevard, near Sims Bayou, at around 2:00 a.m.
A witness told authorities that the woman was operating a black Volvo S80 southbound toward the intersection with Airport Boulevard when she failed to stop at the red light. Moments later, the Volvo hit a curb, causing it to run off the left side of the roadway, enter a grassy median, and collide with a tree.
Responding paramedics with the Houston Fire Department pronounced the female driver deceased at the scene, confirmed officials.
Her two passengers were transported to a local hospital, where one was listed in critical condition.
