Suspected Drunk Driving Crash on Gulf Freeway Kills One Person, Injures Another

(HOUSTON, November 2019) – Houston police have reported that one person was killed and another was critically injured in a suspected drunk driving crash on the Gulf Freeway at around 1:45 a.m.. Two drivers who were involved in a minor fender bender were out of their vehicles and talking to a wrecker driver on the side of the road. Authorities believe that a speeding car lost control and crashed into the tow truck, and swerved into the men as they were exchanging information, sending them flying into the HOV lane.

HPD are investigating the crash and believe that drunk driving may have been the cause of the second collision. If the driver is found to have been intoxicated, he could be charged with intoxication manslaughter, according to ABC13 Houston.
