Ahmed El Khaled Killed in Auto-Pedestrian Accident on FM 1960 in Harris County, TX

Harris County, TX — December 10, 2022, 24-year-old pedestrian Ahmed El Khaled was fatally struck by a vehicle on Farm to Market Road 1960 in Harris County.

Authorities say the incident happened around 9:45 p.m. on the 200 block of FM 1960 near the North Freeway. Preliminary investigation suggests a Mitsubishi Lancer was headed west in the roadway, passing underneath the freeway, when El Khaled allegedly tried to cross southward through the lanes on foot. The driver reportedly swerved in an unsuccessful attempt to avoid him but made contact in the inside westbound lane.

Ahmed El Khaled was fatally injured in the collision. No other injuries were reported.

No further information is currently available.

Something I try to stress after almost every accident is the importance of not rushing to any judgments about how or why it occurred. The few available details about what happened on FM 1960 might have made some folks jump to conclusions, but as always it's best to investigate carefully and ensure that only facts, not assumptions, tell the story. The narrative as reported has many unanswered questions about light conditions, sightlines, visibility, vehicle speed and condition, other traffic in the area, what else both involved parties did that day, and numerous other details, all of which need careful attention to ensure all the dots are connected and the picture they make is clear.

An investigation's real purpose is simply to find—and prove—the truth. In many cases that's all the people affected by an accident really want, so I hope authorities will diligently work to bring them the whole story. In the end what matters most is bringing them some measure of peace if possible.
