Child Dies, Four Injured in ATV Accident on Providence Street in Houston, TX

Houston, TX -- January 23, 2022, an unborn child died when a pregnant woman's ATV collided with a horse on Providence Street in Houston's Fifth Ward.

Authorities say the incident happened around 4:50 p.m. on the 4700 block of Providence Street near Finnigan Park. Preliminary investigation suggests a three-wheeled ATV backed into a horse in the area, causing the animal to back up and collide with a second ATV behind it. Officials later stated the ATVs were traveling in the area while taking part in a birthday trail ride that began at Finnigan Park.

Both ATV operators, the pregnant woman, and a passenger from the second ATV fell off their vehicles and received injuries. The drivers and the second passenger were transported to a local hospital; reports indicate responders were unaware at the time that the pregnant woman was riding on the first ATV. According to news sources the child she was carrying died Monday.

No further information is available at this time.
