Houston, TX (February 13, 2021) – A motor vehicle accident reported on Friday afternoon claimed the life of a young child in the Houston area. Just after 3:15 p.m., on February 12, officers with the Houston Police Department were notified of a traffic incident on US Highway 290.

Four other people involved in the crash were transported to local hospitals for the treatment of injuries. At this time, the police are investigating to determine the cause of the crash.
