2 women killed in crash on W Tidwell Rd near Houston’s Central Northwest
HOUSTON, TX — Two women died Monday afternoon after a multi-vehicle crash at an intersection in Houston’s Central Northwest area, according to the Houston Police Department.
The fatal accident occurred on the 4300 block of West Tidwell Road and the 5900 block of Bertellis Lane. It was first reported at around 3:20 p.m.
According to the HPD, a 35-year-old woman was driving a black Honda Civic southbound on Bertellis Lane when she proceeded from a stop sign and entered West Tidwell Road intersection. Moments later, the Honda was hit by a westbound Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck. The impact from the crash sent the Honda crashing into a tree in the median, while the pickup veered past the median and struck a white Ford Fusion. The Chevrolet pickup came to rest flipped onto its roof on the eastbound side of West Tidwell Road.
Officials said the driver of the Honda and her passenger, a 60-year-old woman, were both pronounced deceased at the scene.
First responders transported the 18-year-old male driver of the Chevrolet to a local hospital for minor injuries. The driver of the Ford Fusion, a 42-year-old woman, was not reported hurt.
An investigation by the HPD’s Vehicular Crimes Division remains in progress, but authorities said impairment was determined to be not a factor in the crash. No charges have been filed as of this writing.
