Keshia McGee Injured in Traffic Accident on North Loop in Houston, TX

Houston, TX — January 9, 2023, 34-year-old Keshia McGee was injured in a multi-vehicle accident on the North Loop East in Houston.

Authorities say the incident happened around 2:15 p.m. on North Loop East near McCarty Street. Preliminary investigation suggests a Freightliner semi-truck was traveling north on the Loop some distance behind a non-contact passenger vehicle when that vehicle allegedly braked suddenly. The truck driver, unable to stop, steered left to avoid the stopping vehicle ahead.

As it changed lanes the truck crashed into a northbound Orion bus, which in turn pushed the bus into McGee's Toyota Venza. The Toyota veered left and hit a concrete median barrier, then overturned.

McGee suffered serious injuries in the crash. The truck and bus drivers were unhurt.

No further information is currently available.

It's not unusual for people to try and seek a simple explanation for an accident and the injuries that followed. That could prove pretty challenging in Houston, as this appears to be a pretty complicated situation overall. Between a "mystery car" allegedly forcing the truck to swerve and the domino effect of the truck->bus->car->median collisions, there's a lot of room for a creative or ambitious trucking company to argue their driver's unsafe lane change wasn't to blame for the damage done—nevermind that his actions were listed by police as key contributing factors.

To help settle any disputes or confusion, I would (as always) suggest that further more thorough investigation be conducted for details that might have slipped through the cracks originally. For instance, forensic scene analysis (tire markings, debris patterns, 3d scanning) could turn up valuable insights about exactly who did what and why, and looking at the truck's dashcam footage might even help police identify the runaway vehicle that allegedly triggered the whole thing.

The most important thing is to find clear answers, particularly for the woman who was seriously hurt as she just tried to get from A to B. While I don't want to speak for her, in her place I imagine I'd want to know not only how I ended up hurt, but also who's really responsible for that. I hope when all is said and done that authorities can give her a clear picture; anything beyond that would depend on what the picture shows.
