An early morning three-vehicle crash on Tuesday has left three adults and two children injured. One of the adults injured in the accident is listed in critical condition.
According to a story appearing in the Houston Chronicle, the accident occurred at approximately 12:30 a.m. A woman, whose name has not been yet released by authorities was driving her daughters age 4 and 5 and was heading northbound when she ran a stop sign at the intersection of East Wallisville and Wade. Metro Video revealed that the woman’s vehicle struck an eastbound Toyota.
Investigators say that the northbound vehicle carrying the woman and her two daughters drove into a ditch while a woman driving an SUV also struck the Toyota, setting the vehicle into a spin. The male driver of the Toyota was ejected from his vehicle during the crash.
Emergency crews transported the man by LifeFlight to an area hospital where he is currently listed in critical condition. According to reports, in spite of his condition, he is expected to survive.
Harris County Sheriff’s Deputies report that the children in the vehicle with their mother who ran the stop sign were using seatbelts at the time of the crash but were not in child car seats and restraints. No further word has been released regarding the current condition of the children or any others who were injured in the crash.
The investigation is still currently under investigation.
