Boy Struck, Killed by 18-Wheeler in Houston

Houston, TX (10/12/2020) – A boy was killed in a fatal accident involving an 18-wheeler Monday evening in west Houston. 

The accident happened on Brittmoore Road around 5:30 p.m. A four-door sedan ran through a stop sign at an intersection and was hit by an 18-wheeler. A boy, 17, was in the sedan at the time. Another driver was involved but their condition remains unknown. 

The boy was killed as a result of the wreck.

Following the wreck, the 18-wheeler hit a power pole and then caused a fuel spill. There was also a power outage in the area because of the struck power pole.
