A promising Texas high school football star was killed in a tragic car accident on June 5th. The accident occurred around 2:30 a.m. on Highway 6 in Harris County, near Loch Katrine Lane. It was determined that the driver who caused the crash was driving under the influence.
The 16-year-old teenager was a back seat passenger in a BMW. That vehicle was struck by a Hummer, driven by a 47-year-old male at a high rate of speed. Upon impact, the BMW was split completely in half. The front half spun and struck a light pole, while the back half remained at the point of impact. The driver was an 18-year-old, and the front seat passenger was another 16-year-old. Both of them are in critical condition.
The driver of the Hummer who caused the crash was not seriously injured. He has been charged with driving under the influence, and pending the results of a blood test, will likely face additional charges for the death of the teenager.
