One Killed in Auto Accident on West Bellfort Avenue in Houston, TX

Houston, TX — December 24, 2022, a 71-year-old man died in an auto accident on West Bellfort Avenue in Houston.

Authorities say the incident happened around 2:35 p.m. on the 9100 block of West Bellfort. Preliminary investigation suggests the victim was driving a Toyota Tacoma pickup east when he allegedly left his lane for unknown reasons. The Tacoma veered into another eastbound Toyota pickup, then jumped a curb and crashed through some bushes. It came to rest in the driveway of a business at 9501 West Bellfort.

The victim was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. No other injuries were reported.

The investigation is ongoing. No further information is currently available.

I've learned over the years that people often jump to their own conclusions about wrecks like this. When they read that someone's vehicle went out control, their instinct is to blame that person for losing said control. It is possible the victim did something wrong on West Bellfort? Sure; driver errors account for a large percentage of car accidents. However, ignoring other possible factors that the driver may have had no control over risks letting something important slip through the cracks. It would surprise folks to see how often even the authorities miss crucial details.
