Houston, TX (March 28, 2019) – A woman and child are dead and her other child is in critical condition after a single-car crash in east Houston.
The car accident happened Wednesday around 9:00 p.m. near the intersection of Alderson and Nancy Rose.
The woman was driving a Hyundai Elantra with her two boys heading westbound on Alderson, when she veered off the road and crashed into a tree. Authorities said no one was wearing a seatbelt.
Authorities found the woman dead on the scene. The 8-year-old passenger was in the front seat. He was taken to Lyndon B. Johnson Hospital where he later passed away.
The 13-year-old son in the backseat was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital in serious condition and is expected to survive.
