Excessive Speed Leads to Double Fatality Head-On Crash

Head-on collisions often cause death because both cars hit with extreme opposing force. These accidents are often due to miscalculating the speed and distance of the oncoming car or veering into an oncoming lane due to speeding, reckless driving, distractions, or drunk driving.

Witnesses told police the driver of a white Yukon had been weaving in and out of traffic at a high rate of speed prior to a head-on crash that killed a 7-year-old boy and a 25-year-old woman.

The crash occurred when a white SUV drifted into the lane of a Mazda, striking it and forcing the Mazda into a spin before it was struck by an oncoming Dodge Durango. Police said neither driver had a chance to avoid the impact.

The young boy was pronounced dead at the hospital; his parents and two siblings were transported to the hospital in critical condition. The 25-year-old deceased woman was a friend of the family. The driver of the Durango was trapped inside her mangled vehicle. She survived the crash with broken vertebrae and injuries to her hip and knee. The driver of the Yukon that caused the chain reaction of accidents was not hurt and remained on scene. According to Houston Police, the man agreed to a voluntarily blood draw. The results have not been released and at this time and charges have not been filed. The investigation is ongoing.
