Two Pedestrians Hospitalized after East Freeway Crash

Houston, TX (1/22/2020) – Two people are now hospitalized after getting struck by a car while they were helping a stalled vehicle.

The accident happened Tuesday night around midnight near Holland Avenue. According to police, a stalled vehicle in the main lanes of East Freeway was being assisted by a wrecker and two pedestrians when a vehicle came and struck the pedestrians.

The two people were taken to a nearby hospital in critical condition.

Police say that the driver of the fourth vehicle did not see the stopped cars in the roadway.

Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.
