Karen Blow Injured in Auto Accident at Clay and Gessner in Houston, TX

Houston, TX — December 17, 2022, 65-year-old Karen Blow was injured in a traffic accident at Clay and Gessner roads in Harris County.

Authorities say the incident happened around 2:55 p.m. at the intersection of Clay and Gessner. Preliminary investigation suggests a Chevy Colorado was headed west on Clay in the outside lane when it approached Gessner, where it had a red light. Blow was northbound in a Honda Accord on Gessner and began to travel through Clay with a green light.

Investigators allege the Chevy driver disregarded his red light and crashed into the Honda's passenger side. The impact sent the Honda off-course; it traveled through the median of Gessner and hit a stopped Toyota Sienna waiting in the southbound turn lane.

Blow was seriously injured in the collision. The Chevy driver received possible injuries; the Toyota driver was unhurt.

No further information is currently available.


At its core this crash appears to be caused by someone running a red light, so it's important that investigators find out exactly why that happened. Was it just a matter of impatience? Distraction? Was something wrong with the westbound truck that prevented it from stopping? Or were police on to something when they suspected that the driver was under the influence of alcohol?

It's not for me to say if any of those or something else entirely was behind that pickup allegedly failing to yield. Only careful investigation and the evidence it uncovers can tell the whole story, but I think most would agree the victim deserves that. If there are other steps to take or anyone else to hold responsible for her injuries, knowing so would depend on what investigators find out.
