Man killed, teen critically hurt in crash involving DUI suspect at Cypress intersection
HARRIS COUNTY, TX — A man died Sunday night after a two-vehicle crash in south Cypress that left a teenage boy critically injured, reports ABC13.
The collision occurred at the corner of Tuckerton Road and Greenhouse Road, in an area east of Rennell Elementary School. It was first reported shortly after 8:45 p.m.
According to Harris County Sheriff’s deputies, the suspect, Brett Huber, was operating a black Ford F-350 pickup truck eastbound on Tuckerton Road when he failed to stop at a red light. Moments after entering the intersection, the F-350 struck a white Toyota Sienna that was traveling northbound on Greenhouse Road with a green light.
The driver of the Toyota, Minh Tran, died from his injuries at the scene, confirmed officials. His passenger, a 14-year-old boy, was transported by LifeFlight to an area hospital in critical condition.
Authorities said Huber, who was suspected of intoxication, was placed under custody and also taken to the hospital, where he was listed in stable condition. He has since been charged with “intoxication manslaughter and intoxication assault with a vehicle – serious bodily injury.”
The HCSO’s Vehicular Crimes Division continues to investigate the case.
