Attempt To Run Red Light Turns Fatal

In a tragic accident on Tuesday, March 22, a driver lost his life after running a red light, reports Fox 26 news.

The police report stated that the incident took place on the evening of March 22nd, at approximately 11:30pm. The collision occurred on the West Little York Road, near the intersection with the West Sam Houston Tollway. According to the report, a male driver in a Ford Taurus was traveling west along the road when he approached a red light. Rather than stopping at the light, he attempted to speed through it, causing his vehicle to collide with another vehicle, a Lincoln car, driving north along the Tollway.

The Lincoln driver was unhurt in the crash, but the operator of the Taurus was fatally injured, dying from his wounds shortly afterwards.

No Charges To Be Filed Against Survivor

Officers responding to the accident said that there were no passengers in either vehicle. The Lincoln driver, who was mostly unharmed by the crash, has not been charged with any crime, as police believe that the Taurus driver was at fault for causing the incident. They also do not currently believe that either party was intoxicated at the time of the collision.

No information about the identities of either person involved has been released at this time.
