Driver Injured in Crash with SUV, Utility Pole on Aldine Westfield in Houston, TX

Houston, TX — October 23, 2022, a woman was seriously injured after her pickup crashed into an SUV and a utility pole on Aldine Westfield in north Houston.

Authorities say the incident happened around midnight at the intersection of Aldine Westfield and Little York. Preliminary investigation suggests only that the victim's GMC Sierra crashed with a Kia Sportage in the crossroads. The impact caused the pickup to flip over and it then crashed into a utility pole and wrapped partway around it.

Firefighters cut the Sierra driver free of the heavily-damaged vehicle; she was then transported by ambulance to a local hospital. No other injuries were reported.

Commentary on Auto Accident on Aldine Westfield in Houston

There's no real telling what happened here yet, but the serious damage involved surely merits a careful and thorough investigation--preferably by experienced independent professionals.

That's not to knock the hard work of police, but in many cases waiting for them to release a report doesn't work out so well for victims who need answers and help. Between competing priorities, limited staff and resources, and only so much time to devote to most wrecks, officers must sometimes rush through their investigation and crucial details may slip through the cracks. When that happens and their reports are incomplete or erroneous, it's the people hurt in the wreck who suffer most for the mistakes.

Maybe that won't be an issue here and police will get to the bottom of things, but I think most would agree that the victim deserves to know no stone was left unturned. Any steps beyond getting answers would depend on what those answers are.
