Man Killed in Car Accident on East Freeway in Houston, TX

Houston, TX -- September 1, 2022, a driver succumbed to fatal injuries due to an accident which occurred along the East Freeway.

Initial details said that the crash happened on August 17 along East Freeway between Holland Avenue and Federal Road.

It appears that a 32-year-old man was in a vehicle traveling westbound along the freeway service road when it somehow lost control. Doing so, the car crashed into a pillar.

The driver of the vehicle went to a hospital where he reportedly succumbed to his injuries on September 1. No further information is available at this time.

Commentary on Car Accident on East Freeway at Holland in Houston

When folks see a single-vehicle crash at 2:00 a.m., tragic as the situation may be, they tend to assume the driver was drunk. Frankly, that's often true--especially in Harris County. But that's not a reason to blame the victim. In fact, it could be a reason to find out if a local bar got the victim killed.

In Texas, dram shop law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. I've helped hundreds of families who found out their hardships were in part the result of a business that would rather make a couple of sales than follow the law, harming their communities and even their own customers.

With that said, I want to emphasize this is still just one common possibility. Other possibilities warrant attention, as well, common or otherwise. Mechanical issues, medical emergency, cell phone usage, tire failure, road hazards, other reckless drivers who left the scene, etc. The best way forward for any family in a situation like this is knowing the full story. Are those steps being taken here?
