One Killed, One Injured in Single-Vehicle Accident on S. Dairy Ashford Rd. in Houston, TX

Houston, TX — September 2, 2023, one person was killed, and another was injured in a single-vehicle crash around 12:05 a.m. on S. Dairy Ashford Rd. in Houston.

According to officials, four people were in a sliver southbound Honda Accord when the vehicle reportedly veered out of its lane, struck a curb, lost control, struck two trees in the road's median, and then broke into two pieces. The driver and the front-seat passenger allegedly got out of the broken car and ran on foot to a nearby apartment complex leaving two injured passengers behind.

Houston first responders report they found one of the backseat passengers deceased and the other, 20 years old, with serious injuries. The injured passenger was purportedly taken to a hospital in stable condition.

Authorities later reportedly received a call from family members of the fled driver and were able to apprehend the suspect. Officers have not said what charges they will recommend.

Through my years of experience, I've come to realize that while there are several reasons drivers flee from a crash and leave several people behind, the most common one is alcohol consumption. While it's too soon to know if this crash follows that pattern, if the driver was under the influence, that would completely change the legal dynamic for the loved ones of the deceased and the injured victim.
