Houston, TX (September 17, 2021) - A mother and son suffered life-threatening injuries following a hit-and-run accident that occurred on Friday morning, September 17, in the Humble area.
Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said that, around 7:30 a.m., the woman and her four children, ages 2 to 8 years old, were traveling eastbound on FM 1960 near Woodland Hills. At that time, another driver in a small, silver SUV cut the woman off.
The woman attempted to avoid the accident but overcorrected, causing her vehicle to roll over and land on the other side of the guardrail.
Paramedics took the woman and her 8-year-old son to an area medical center in critical condition. The sheriff said the three other children were also transported to the hospital but are in stable condition.
Authorities are now searching for the hit-and-run driver. Officers are hoping other motorists may have dashcam video that caught the crash and can help them identify the person who caused it. They are asking nearby businesses for surveillance footage as well.
The HCSO is continuing its investigation at this time.
Our thoughts are with those who sustained injuries. We hope for their full recovery.
Houston Car Accidents
Being injured in a car accident can have unpredictable consequences on the lives of victims. In many cases, victims are rushed from the site of their accidents to area hospitals for treatment. Tens of thousands of people have to undergo emergency surgery for their injuries and spend days or even weeks in area hospitals.
Many people are forced to spend time off work to recover and deal with pain and suffering. Victims are also often faced with the financial impact of not being able to work while being presented with tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills.
Although we can be careful to ensure the safety of other motorists on the roads, there is no guarantee that others are providing us with the same care and consideration. In fact, nearly 4 out of every 5 accidents are a result of a driver’s reckless and negligent actions.
When victims are injured in vehicle accidents, it is crucial that they reach out to a car accident attorney in Houston as soon as possible. Those injured in accidents caused by negligent drivers may be entitled to compensation to help cover the costs they face moving forward.
