Woman left critically hurt after crash with big rig in west Houston

HOUSTON, TX — A 25-year-old is in critical condition following a crash late Tuesday on Interstate 10 near Houston’s Energy Corridor, according to ABC13.

The wreck occurred on the westbound lanes (Katy Freeway) near State Highway 6, shortly after 11:00 p.m.

Houston Police said the young woman was behind the wheel of a Hyundai Sonata when she merged into another lane at an unsafe time, entering the path of an 18-wheeler. The big rig then struck the Hyundai, which caused both vehicles to crash into the HOV lane.

The driver of the Hyundai, who was removed from the wreckage by Houston firefighters, was rushed to a local hospital for critical injuries.

The driver of the big rig, 61, was not reported injured.

Not long after that crash, an HPD officer who was helping to block traffic about a mile and a half east of the scene was also injured when his patrol car was struck by a DWI suspect.

Both the officer and the suspect were also transported to a local hospital for injuries believed to be non-life-threatening.

While two other cars went on the strike the suspect’s vehicle, no one else was reported injured.
