Houston, TX (September 30, 2021) – On the afternoon of Wednesday, September 29, a fatal auto accident claimed the life of at least one person on an interstate in Houston. The crash was reported to have taken place between two vehicles on Interstate 69.
Sources indicate that the accident happened on Interstate 69 near I-45 at around 1:40 p.m. The right lane of I-69 and the southbound right shoulder were affected, as well as three frontage lanes. Traffic in both directions on Interstate 69 was blocked for an extended period of time.
Officials closed three feeder lanes and two freeway lanes on Interstate 69 near Interstate 45 in order to assist those at the scene and investigate the circumstances of the collision. Reports show a black car was on the scene with severe front-end damage located on the feeder road.
Another black car was found on the embankment of the freeway after the collision took place. No other details are available at this time as authorities in Houston continue to investigate.
We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.

A car accident in Texas that results in injuries takes place approximately once every two minutes, according to statistical reports. Being injured in a car crash may be painful and scary.

Some treatments are extensive and expensive, resulting in a serious financial burden for the victim, who is probably unable to work due to their injuries.
