Toddler hit, killed by vehicle in parking lot of NW Houston hotel

HOUSTON, TX — An 18-month child has died following a pedestrian accident in the parking lot of an extended-stay hotel in northwest Houston, according to ABC13.

Houston Police Department officials said officers were dispatched to the scene in the vicinity of 6099 Guhn Road, near the U.S. Highway 290/Northwest Freeway feeder road, at around 6:32 p.m.

A preliminary investigation found that the young girl was playing in the parking lot of the complex when she was struck by a small SUV.

The child was rushed to an area hospital where she succumbed to her injuries.

HPD Lt. Larry Crowson said the driver, who remained at the scene following the incident and cooperated with officers, did not display signs of intoxication, but a DWI task force was called to the scene to conduct a more thorough assessment.

The HPD’s Vehicular Crimes Division was also at the scene gathering information to be sent to the district attorney’s office, which will determine whether charges will be filed.
