Dianne Miles Injured in Crash with Alleged DWI Driver on Stuebner Airline Rd in Harris County, TX
Harris County, TX — January 4, 2023, 54-year-old Dianne Miles was injured in a crash with an alleged DWI driver on Stuebner Airline Road in Harris County.
Authorities say the incident happened around 10:25 p.m. on Stuebner Airline at Cypresswood Drive. Preliminary investigation suggests a Dodge Challenger was traveling north on Stuebner when the driver allegedly disregarded a red light at Cypresswood. As the car continued north it crashed into the driver's side of Miles' westbound Nissan Murano.
Miles and the Dodge's 29-year-old driver were both injured in the crash. Both were taken to area hospitals for treatment.
No further information is currently available.
People may think there's little else to know here if someone really ran a light and crashed into another car, but are investigators certain that's the whole story? If he ran the light, why? Was he just impatient? Was he distracted by something? Could he have been impaired? Did anything go wrong with his car that prevented it from stopping?
I'm not trying to needlessly complicate things, just pointing out that context matters. A crash caused because someone was drunk or looking at his phone is much different from one where he had a medical emergency or his brakes failed, but the end result might still look the same. It's important for everyone's sake to learn as many specifics as possible, so I hope authorities get some answers for the people who need them.
