Katy, TX News – Courtesy of KPRC Channel 2 – (September 11, 2015) – A 17-year-old was killed and three others were injured in a wreck in George Bush Park in west Houston. The victim attended Taylor High School.
According to police, the victim was driving a green BMW eastbound in the 15200 block of Westheimer around 1: 50 p.m. when he failed to maintain a single lane and crossed into a westbound lane of traffic. A black Infinity QX56, traveling westbound, then struck the BMW’s passenger side.
The student died at the scene. The Infinity’s driver and two passengers were transported to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
According to authorities, wet roads and bad tire tread may have caused the student to lose control of his car and veer into oncoming traffic. The victim was killed in the crash.
The other people in the SUV, which included an 8-year-old, were all taken to the hospital with injuries but are expected to be OK.
Katy Magazine is heartbroken over this news, and would like to express condolences to the family of the student lost in this tragedy.
