Ice-Over Causes Fatal Traffic Accident on Houston's Southwest Freeway

During the icy conditions in South Texas early last month, a fatal traffic accident occurred at 5600 Southwest Freeway (South U.S. Highway 59) about 3:55 a.m. Friday, February 4th, reports say.

Due to ice on the roadway that week, several vehicles were involved in a traffic accident on the freeway, with the resulting chaos prompting each driver to exit their car to cjeck the conditions of their vehicles. As the drivers exited their vehicles, the victim was then struck by at least one other vehicle, which also slid on the ice.

The male victim, 20, whose name was not reported by police, was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital where he was pronounced dead on Sunday (Feb. 6). The investigation is continuing.
