Houston, TX (August 16, 2021) – Three people were involved in a crash in southwest Houston on the morning of Monday, August 16. The wreck occurred when a vehicle crashed into Brays Bayou for reasons still under police investigation.
According to information from Houston officials, all three victims were able to exit the car on their own, which was seen upside down in the water after the incident. Police stated that two of the three were uninjured and that the third suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries that required attention from medical professionals.
The victim was transported from the scene to an area hospital for treatment. No one involved has been identified to the public at this time.
Witnesses told authorities that the vehicle was spotted speeding down Bellaire Boulevard before the driver turned north onto Wilcrest. That’s when the vehicle lost control, drove through a parking lot and into the bayou.
A dive team searched the bayou to ensure that no other victims were submerged in the water. Police are working to determine why the vehicle was traveling so fast along Bellaire Boulevard.
Nothing further has been reported at this time.
Our thoughts are with those involved. We hope for their full recovery.
