Houston, TX – 2 Critically Injured in DUI Accident on Shoal Creek Drive
Houston, TX (March 24, 2019) On the early morning of March 24th, a DUI accident happened in the 9100 block of Shoal Creek Drive at about 2:00 a.m.
According to the reports, a man was driving his silver Infiniti at a high speed when he lost control and crashed into another vehicle. The impact of the crash sent the other female driver’s car into a ditch.
When the paramedics arrived, they found both drivers critically injured and transported them to Memorial Hermann Hospital for treatment.
The accident is currently under investigation, but the man driving the Infiniti admitted to being under the influence at the time of the collision.
Our thoughts are with both drivers and their families at this difficult time. We hope and pray for a full recovery.
DUI Accidents in Texas
Statistics show that in 2017, DUI accidents were the most prominent on Sundays between 2:00 a.m. and 2:59 a.m. Unfortunately, whenever drivers are impaired, they’re more prone to cause an accident since too much alcohol slows down the effectiveness of the body’s central nervous system. This leads to delayed reaction times and slow hand-eye coordination, which negatively effects the driver’s ability to safely operate a vehicle. For those injured in DUI accidents, it’s important to seek help from a Texas personal injury lawyer to help with filing a personal injury lawsuit.
