Man dies after car strikes METRO rail support pillar in downtown Houston

HOUSTON, TX — A 25-year-old man died early Wednesday morning after a single-vehicle accident on North Main Street in downtown Houston, reports the Houston Police Department.

Officials said the fatal crash happened in the 300 block of the road, near University of Houston-Downtown (UHD), at around 3:55 a.m.

According to HPD’s Vehicular Crimes Division, the man was behind the wheel of a silver Chevrolet Impala traveling southbound in the area. For reasons still unclear, the Chevrolet veered into the center median, traveled under the raised platform of a METRO rail, and hit the middle concrete support pillar.
