Houston, TX – 3 Injured In Double Hit And Run At Gulf Bank & N Freeway
Houston, TX (April 15, 2019) – Just after 3 a.m. on April 15, the Harris County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene of a collision on Gulf Bank.
According to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, a Dodge pickup truck and a Buick collided on the roadway near Airline and Gulf Bank. Both drivers fled the scene of the initial collision.
A deputy in the area witnessed the collision and followed the pickup truck, who eventually crashed into a second vehicle, a Nissan Maxima, and fled the scene again. The truck continued to run until crashing into a power pole, then the driver took off by foot. She was apprehended shortly after.
The driver of the Nissan was transported to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Two passengers in the pickup truck, an adult and a teenager, were both injured and transported to an area hospital. The driver from the Buick was later apprehended.
We hope the three victims injured in these collisions are able to make a fast and full recovery. Our thoughts are with them and their families at this time.
