Woman fatally hit by vehicle while rendering aid to crash victim near west Houston

HARRIS COUNTY, TX — A woman was fatally injured Sunday, June 18, when she was struck by a vehicle near west Houston, moments after being involved in a separate crash, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

The HSCO’s Vehicular Crimes Division said the events unfolded in the 14000 block of Alief Clodine Road at around 1:20 a.m.

Preliminary details indicate the woman, Nneamaka Ikenna-Okoli, was driving a 2010 Hyundai Elantra westbound in lane #1 of the road when the Hyundai hit another vehicle. While the Hyundai came to rest in the grassy area, the second vehicle overturned on the roadway.

After exiting her own vehicle, Ikenna-Okoli entered the roadway and attempted to render aid by removing the male driver from the rolled vehicle. Moments later, Ikenna-Okoli was hit by a driver in a 2005 Chevrolet Impala.

First responders rushed Ikenna-Okoli by Life Flight to Memorial Hermann Medical Center. She succumbed to her injuries two days later, on June 20, 2023, confirmed officials.

No further details have been disclosed at this time, as an investigation remains open and ongoing.
