1 woman struck, killed by car while standing on IH-10

HOUSTON, TX- A woman, who had already been rear-ended moments before, was struck and killed by another car on the side of IH-10 on April 15th, KTRK reports.

It was around 6a.m. when the woman’s truck was first hit in the rear by a vehicle. The woman had been driving slowly, and this is believed to have been caused by maintenance issues that were occurring with her own vehicle.

After getting rear-ended, the woman stopped on the side of the road and got out of her vehicle. This is when the other car fatally hit her in the eastbound lanes.

Authorities believe that a fourth vehicle may have been involved, but they are currently investigating to see if that is true.

The eastbound lanes of IH-10 were not opened until around three hours later.
