Nelson Ramos Jorge Killed in Car Accident in Houston, TX
Houston, TX — August 13, 2023, Nelson Ramos Jorge was identified as a man killed in a car accident at around 3:59 p.m. along the East Freeway.
Preliminary information about the accident released by Harris County officials indicates the incident took place at the intersection of the East Freeway (Interstate 10) and Freeport Street intersection.
According to officials, the accident involved a man they identified in their statements as Nelson Ramos Jorge. Authorities believe that Ramos Jorge was off-road along the median which separates the corner of East Freeway and Freeport Street and the u-turn lane from the westbound service road to the eastbound side. It appears that a Ford F-150 taking that u-turn lane somehow continued off-road and onto the median, hitting Ramos Jorge in the process.
As a result of this collision, Ramos Jorge sustained injuries which were said to be serious. It appears the injuries ultimately proved fatal on August 16, and Ramos Jorge died as a result of the accident.
The driver that police say hit Ramos Jorge was allegedly intoxicated at the time of the accident. Right now, there does not appear to be any official charges nor confirmation on the alleged intoxicated driving. Investigations are ongoing.
