Tyrone Porter Killed, 2 Injured in Car Accident on Bissonnet Street in Houston, TX
UPDATE (February 7, 2023): Further details from officials identified the man killed in the accident as 53-year-old Tyrone Porter. Additional details about the crash are still under investigation. My hope is that authorities know more behind the scenes than they've released to the public. If not, that means the victims and families involved may not be getting the full story, either. It would surprise people to learn how often I had police reports come across my desk which were supposedly "complete" yet missed all kinds of important details. There are some skilled investigators down in Houston, though, so I just hope they were the ones handling the details of this accident.
