Brandi Johnson Killed by Vehicle on Crosby-Lynchburg Road in Harris County, TX

Harris County, TX — July 22, 2022, 46-year-old pedestrian Brandi Johnson was fatally hit by a vehicle on Crosby-Lynchburg Road in Harris County.

According to reports the incident happened around 9:55 p.m. on Crosby-Lynchburg (FM 2100) near Spence Lane. Preliminary investigation suggests a Ford F-150 pickup truck was headed north on the roadway in the center-turn lane. Ahead, Johnson was in a wheelchair traveling westward across the road.

Reports say Johnson failed to yield the right-of-way to the motor vehicle and was hit in the turn lane. She was taken to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead.

No further information is currently available.

Commentary on Brandi Johnson Accident on Crosby-Lynchburg Road

Reports very simplistically say the victim of this accident didn't yield to traffic. For people who tend to think pedestrians should stay out of the road unless there's a crosswalk that may be all they need to hear, but accidents are typically a lot more nuanced than that. I hope police are expending more effort to learn the whole truth than these reports reflect.

There are still too many unanswered questions here. What's the lighting situation in that area at night? Images of the 14000 block of FM 2100 show there aren't many streetlights, but it's also smack in the middle of several businesses pointed toward the road. How hard to see was the victim for the approaching driver? Were the pickup's headlights on? Were both parties paying attention? If not, why not? Police reportedly took blood samples from the victim for toxicological testing; did they have a specific reason for that? Is impairment suspected as an issue?

None of those questions or the many others that still need attention are meant to overcomplicate things or make accusations. I'm only saying what I so often do: When someone is hurt or killed in an accident it's important not to jump to any conclusions, but instead to investigate carefully and learn all the available facts. If someone doesn't look for more answers and try harder to make sense of this terrible accident, the victim's loved ones may not get the whole story they deserve.
