Houston, TX (9/12/2021) – A person was killed and another was injured after a fatal T-bone wreck on Sunday.
The accident happened around 3:15 a.m. on the Southwest Freeway service road near Fountainview. A woman ran a red light and T-boned an Acura TL that was headed eastbound on Fountainview.
The driver of the Acura was killed at the scene.
The passenger riding in the Acura was sent to the hospital in critical condition.
A woman has been charged with intoxication manslaughter.
Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.
T-bone car accidents, also known as side-impact collisions, can cause drivers and passengers to suffer severe injuries.
These accidents are unique because unlike other types of collision, such as rear-end or head-on collisions, victims of T-bone collisions are only separated from the colliding vehicle by a thin door and window. The window can shatter on impact, showering the victim in tiny shards of glass as he or she comes into contact with the colliding vehicle’s hood.
