Speeding Driver Crashes Into Poles And Vehicles At Houston Dealership, Dies
When you’re in a hurry, do you push the speed limit? Perhaps you need to get through that next light and it just turned yellow. You punch the gas. No harm was done, right? Or you’re late for an appointment, so you push just a few miles per hour over the speed limit. What could possibly go wrong? Other times, people speed because of emotional triggers. Anger and anxiety make people behave foolishly. Or they speed because they want the exhilaration of being a rebel, a rule-breaker.
Of course, such behavior can easily result in major property damage, personal injury, or even death. This is well illustrated by a man that lost his life early Sunday morning in Houston because of the unreasonable speed he was driving at.
According to Click 2 Houston, one driver was clocked at around 100 miles per hour as he traveled along the 9400 block of the Southwest Freeway. He then lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a pole and struck two vehicles at a car dealership. The car caught fire in the accident. Police said the driver was unable to escape from the vehicle and died in the fire.
Thankfully no one else was injured in this accident, which occurred at approximately 3:50 in the morning. The Houston Police feel this accident would not have been fatal if the driver hadn’t been traveling at such a high speed.
