Young girl dies after argument leads to rollover crash on TX-288 in south central Houston

HOUSTON, TX — A 3-year-old girl died following a single-vehicle wreck late Sunday on State Highway 288 in south central Houston that hurt six others, including five children, reports ABC13.

Houston Police responded to the fatal wreck near Wheeler Avenue, shortly after 11:50p.m.

Investigators say a 29-year-old woman was behind the wheel of a northbound black Chevy Tahoe that was transporting six children in the backseats and her 39-year-old husband, who was possibly intoxicated, in the front passenger seat. Both adults were engaged in an apparent argument when the husband grabbed the wheel, causing the SUV to slam into a retaining wall and overturn with its front-side smashed in.

All six child passengers were transported to a local hospital where the 3-year-old girl succumbed to her injuries. Of the five other children, which includes a 7-year-old and a 3-month-old, two were listed in critical condition while three were stable.

The driver was also taken to a hospital in stable condition. Her husband was not reported injured, but the HPD has indicated that he may be charged pending an investigation.

A section of SH-288 was blocked off for hours as crews processed the scene.
