A moment of inattention, just one last drink before you go, a few more seconds awake… all of those little factors can add up to deadly consequences. It’s not clear what caused the Chevrolet Malibu to lose control. The driver of that Malibu had their moment of confusion while traveling east on Greens Road. As the Malibu was veering into traffic, a white Toyota Corolla slammed into the vehicle. This tossed a 17-year-old onto the pavement. Authorities were quickly on the scene, rushing the 17-year-old to Ben Taub General Hospital. They were hoping, as it turns out vainly, that they could save the girl’s life. Unfortunately, the wounds proved too much and the girl died only hours later. Such a tragedy it became. Houston police are currently investigating the causes of the crash. The names of the people involved with the accident haven’t been released to the public. When there are minors involved, that is usually the case.
