Saul Trujillo Injured in Auto Accident on La Branch St in Houston, TX
Houston, TX — August 17, 2022, 80-year-old Saul Trujillo was seriously injured in a traffic accident on La Branch Street in Houston.
Authorities say the incident happened around 6:50 a.m. on the 1000 block of La Branch at McKinney Street. Preliminary investigation suggests a Ford F-150 was traveling south on La Branch as Trujillo drove a Honda Pilot SUV east on McKinney. Investigators allege he ran a red light at the intersection and the Pilot's rear-left quarter was hit by the southbound pickup.
Trujillo suffered serious injuries in the collision. The Ford driver received possible injuries.
No further information is currently available.
If reports have their facts straight there may not be much else to say about this accident except to acknowledge how terrible it must have been for those involved. Investigators said the victim received a "major hand injury," and I do sort of wonder how that occurred as he was reportedly wearing a seat belt and multiple airbags deployed in his vehicle, but a lot of things happen all at once in a crash and maybe something just slipped past officers' notice at the scene. I just hope authorities made sure they had the whole story before wrapping up, since the people involved deserve all the answers they can get.
