Double Crashes and Rollover Kill Driver
At around 5:30 am on Tuesday, January 5th, the adult male driver of a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed on Richmond in southwest Houston hit another vehicle at the Hillcroft intersection and then, without stopping, the same vehicle continued forward and hit a large gas line and rolled over. The driver was killed instantly in the second collision and a major gas leak closed traffic on Richmond in both directions.
Emergency crews responded and a shelter-in-place was ordered in the area until the leak could be secured. Investigation of the tragedy continues. There are presently no details available as to either what caused the first collision or whether any occupants of the struck vehicle were hurt.
