3yo Girl Injured by Vehicle on Mossy Spring Ln in Harris County, TX

Harris County, TX — July 2, 2022, a 3-year-old girl was struck and seriously injured by a vehicle in a yard by Mossy Spring Lane in Harris County.

According to reports the incident happened around 6:15 p.m. on Mossy Spring near Grassy Hill Lane. Preliminary investigation suggests 64-year-old Paul Zymowski was driving a Ford F-150 pickup east on the roadway when he made a right turn toward a driveway. Reports indicate the turn was unsafe and the Ford ran over the curb and partway into an adjacent yard, where it hit a 3-year-old girl with its passenger mirror.

The girl suffered serious injuries in the collision. Zymowski was unhurt and investigators collected blood samples for DWI testing.

No further information is available at this time.

Commentary on Mossy Spring Lane Pedestrian Accident

Reports say investigators took samples for testing, but that doesn't necessarily mean they'll find anything and it's best not to jump to any such conclusions. Police run DWI tests all the time in situations where intoxication could be an explanation, but they're not always right and no fingers should be pointed before the facts can say one way or the other.

If tests confirm the driver was intoxicated that might change things somewhat--not just in terms of what charges might apply, but also whether a local business had anything to do with the damage dealt to that poor girl. Under Texas dram shop law an alcohol vendor who over-serves an obviously intoxicated customer may be liable for injuries he causes or suffers while under the influence.

Having said that, I want to repeat that intoxication is just a theory unless clear evidence proves it. It's important not to ignore other possible explanations in the meantime. The truck could have hit a bad patch of road or had a malfunction, or the driver could simply have misjudged the turn with a momentary but costly mistake. I'm not saying I know one way or the other--just earnestly hoping that police will devote enough time and care to the matter to come up with the truth. The most important thing right now is to be thorough and gather all the facts; any other steps would depend on what those facts turn out to be.
