Phillips Gardner Killed in Pedestrian Accident in Houston, TX

Houston, TX -- February 14, 2023, Phillips Gardner was killed due to an accident where a vehicle struck him along the freeway.

Authorities said that the incident happened at around 9:00 p.m. along the North Freeway service road just off of Remington Valley.

It appears that Phillips Gardner was with family along the freeway while helping relatives that had broken down. Gardner apparently walked to a nearby gas station and was coming back across the service road. A passing vehicle then hit Gardner, ultimately causing him fatal injuries.

Authorities right now say only that the driver cooperated and is not suspected of being intoxicated. But one detail I didn't see many reports discussing was the possible speed of the vehicle involved. It's heart-wrenching to watch, but a distraught family member in a news video says at one point that the driver was "flying so fast." Could it be that was a significant factor in this collision?

Maybe police already did or continue to look into that, but sometimes they can be a bit too quick to move on once they realize alcohol and drugs aren't involved. Could it be that this man, this father, would still be alive had the vehicle been traveling at appropriate speeds? Is there important information the public hasn't been made aware of yet—or more importantly, that the family has yet to hear? Perhaps folks should consider that before anyone starts to jump to conclusions and thinks they know what happened here.
