Joshua Troutt Killed in Car Accident in Harris County, TX
Harris County, TX -- January 6, 2023, Joshua Troutt was killed following an accident where multiple vehicles collided on Fry Road.
Authorities said they responded to the Cypress area at Fry Road and Morrison Grove Drive at around 3:30 p.m. Their details said that Joshua Troutt was in a Ford F-250 traveling southbound along Fry. At Morrison Grove, a Mazda CX-9 reportedly failed to yield, crashing with Troutt's pickup, sending it off-road. Troutt sustained fatal injuries in the crash.
Police said there was a white Dodge Ram 1500 Rebel alongside the Ford, possibly racing, which left the scene. The woman driving the Mazda had injuries said to be non-life-threatening. Additional details remain under investigation.
With such early reports, I'm certainly not going to say I know what happened here. That would be outright irresponsible. And even though there are some concerning claims in these reports, it's best folks learn to take them with a grain of salt. The fact of the matter is the evidence needs to tell the story, and it's not clear if authorities know any more than the few details they released to the public. I can't count how many times families came to me with similar reports only for more thorough investigations to show police missed important details. Whether or not that happens here, the last thing anyone should be doing is jumping to conclusions.
