Woman Strikes Culvert After Driving Into Ditch
A young woman has died after she drove her vehicle into a ditch and struck a concrete culvert late Thursday night. According to Harris County Sheriff’s deputies, the accident happened around 10:15 p.m. on Huffman-New Caney Road near Northwood Country Road. Initial investigations into the crash indicate that the 25-year-old female driver lost control of her SUV and went onto the shoulder of the road. A large ditch next to the roadway caused the vehicle to go 50 yards before it struck the culvert. The victim was sent to the hospital in critical condition and later died at the hospital of her injuries. Investigators are continuing to look into the cause of the crash.
