Woman killed in rollover crash following Baytown road rage incident
HARRIS COUNTY, TX — A woman died late last Thursday, July 6, after a road rage incident caused her vehicle to overturn in northwest Baytown, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.
The fatal wreck occurred in the 1900 block of Ellis School Road at around 11:13 p.m.
A preliminary investigation found that the victim, Aaliayah Harrison, was driving a 2013 Dodge Avenger westbound in the eastbound lane of the road. A male driver, Omar Guess, was traveling eastbound on the same side of the road in a 2009 Nissan Altima with a woman in the front-right passenger seat. Authorities said Harrison appeared to be engaged in a road rage incident when she used the Dodge to strike the Nissan multiple times. At one point, she lost control of her vehicle, which veered off the left side of the roadway and flipped over into a ditch on the roadway’s south side.
Authorities said Harrison, who had not been wearing a seat belt, was partially ejected and pinned under the rolled vehicle. The victim, who was found with no signs of life after the crash, was pronounced deceased.
Guess and his passenger were not reported injured in the event. Responding officers indicated the male driver did not display signs of intoxication at the scene.
An investigation by the HCSO’s Vehicular Crimes Division remains ongoing.
