Car Found Submerged in Bayou under Wilcrest Drive, 2 Dead in Houston, TX

Houston, TX — October 31, 2022, two people died after a car ran off Wilcrest Drive and became submerged in a bayou in Houston.

Authorities say the incident most likely happened around 3 or 4 a.m. on Wilcrest near Beechnut, though they weren't called about it until the early afternoon. Preliminary investigation suggests only that a sedan with two occupants ran off the road between two bridges on Wilcrest and crashed down into a bayou below, then sank in the water.

Two people were discovered inside the vehicle once it was pulled from the water. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.

The investigation continues. No further information is currently available.

Commentary on Car Accident on Wilcrest Drive in Houston

Right now there's no telling how this tragedy occurred, and I think most would agree that it's not fair or just to make any assumptions as investigators keep trying to put the pieces together. I can only hope that they have the forensic knowledge and equipment to look into all the possibilities and won't be wholly lost if they find no witnesses. If they're unable to connect the dots, perhaps independent experts with the training and tools to make more sense of the wreck should be called in.

Not only must the victims be identified so their loved ones can be notified, but also the circumstances of their passing must be learned to bring some badly-needed answers to those who need them. Learning the whole story is clearly the primary goal; any steps beyond that would depend on what investigators find out.
