Houston car accident attorneys know that when one accident occurs, especially on a busy motorway, others are likely to follow. Because of the high speeds that drivers travel on freeways, if an accident happens in front of you, it is sometimes difficult to react in time to avoid it, and a chain reaction of several subsequent accidents occurs.
A multi-car pile up in Northwest Houston on Saturday night left one person dead and several others injured. The accident occurred on the Sam Houston Parkway near the Veterans Memorial exit at about 11:30 p.m.
In the final count, five vehicles were involved in the accident. The injured people were taken to a nearby hospital, but their names and status of their conditions has not yet been released. The identity of the fatality has also not been released, pending family notification.
The initial cause of the accident remains a mystery. The Houston Police Department has implemented a continuing investigation as to the cause of the chain reaction accident. In the meantime, if you have any information regarding this accident, please contact the Houston Police Department.
