The accident happened on Beltway 8-West, on the Sam Houston Tollway near Westheimer Road around 12:30 a.m. A woman drove her vehicle in the wrong direction on the tollway and crashed head-on into a pickup truck driven by a man.

The woman was killed at the scene.

The man was taken to the hospital. He is expected to survive.

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

Wrong-way collisions are one of the most deadly kinds of collisions on roads even though they are less common. According to a Highway Special Investigation Report, a study in Virginia found the fatality rate for wrong-way collisions on controlled-access highways to be 27 times that of other kinds of accidents.

Because the woman caused a wrong-way accident, the driver of the pickup truck has a right to a personal injury claim against the woman.
