Houston, TX (July 10, 2021) – The driver of a car that was rear-ended when it stopped unexpectedly on a highway in north Houston on Saturday, July 10th, has reportedly lost their life.
The accident took place at about 8:00 p.m. on Highway 249 in the area of the Greens Road exit ramp when a man in a car driving on 249 pulled in front of a van and then hit the brakes. Unable to avoid the car, the van crashed into its back end.
The driver of the car was transported to a local hospital, where he passed away. The condition of the van’s driver is unknown.
