Teenager Injured in Car Accident on Spur 330 in Baytown, TX

Baytown, TX -- December 21, 2022, a teenager was injured due to an accident where a wrong-way driver crashed into their vehicle.

Details from public statements by officials said that the incident happened just before 11:00 p.m. along the northbound Spur 330 flyover to Highway 146. It appears that a GMC Sierra was traveling the wrong direction on the flyover, resulting in a collision with a GMC Terrain driven by a 17-year-old girl.

The teenager was take to a hospital with incapacitating injuries. The wrong-way driver appeared to be uninjured, but they allegedly left the crash scene. Police also say they believe that driver was intoxicated. Details suggest that authorities identified that driver. Whether or not they're facing charges has not yet been confirmed, but it wouldn't at all be surprising if they were, especially considering the possibility of drunk driving.

Frankly, wrong-way driving almost always involves an intoxicated driver. After all, someone has to be pretty outside of their right mind to get onto a limited access highway without realizing it. What makes that particularly concerning is that's often a sign someone was illegally over-served by a local establishment prior to the crash.

Did that happen here? Cause if it did, that establishment should also be facing consequences for nearly causing a fatal crash. Just about every family that comes to me for help always wants to see accountability above all else, and that comes with knowing the whole story. Did authorities here get the whole story, or did their investigations only go as far as identifying the runaway driver?
