Houston, TX (February 17, 2021) – Houston police were called to the scene of an accident during which a 2-year-old child was ejected from her vehicle and died in northwest Houston on Friday, February 12th.
Officers reported that a truck ran a red light at Bingle Road and State Highway 290 at about 3:15 p.m., colliding with two other vehicles. At least four victims were taken to hospitals including the pick-up truck driver who supposedly caused the fatal accident.
A girl was thrown from a minivan and was transported to a hospital, where she died a short while later. The girl’s mother and older sibling sustained non-life-threatening injuries during the impact.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
