Houston Police Investigate Fatal Crash on Galveston Road

Police are currently investigating a fatal crash that took place at 5100 Galveston Road in South Houston around 5:55 p.m. on Saturday, December 2.

The victim, a 47-year-old man, lost his life in the incident. The Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences is pending verification of the deceased man’s identity.

According to initial reports, the man was driving a tan Cadillac Escalade northbound at the specified address when he failed to maintain a single lane. The Escalade veered into the southbound lanes of Galveston Road, colliding with a white Chevrolet Express cargo van traveling in the opposite direction. The impact led the Escalade to come to a rest in a ditch on the northbound side of the road.

Upon receiving the emergency call, Houston Fire Department paramedics swiftly responded to the scene. They transported the Escalade driver to an area hospital, where he was later pronounced deceased. The passenger in the Escalade and the driver of the Chevrolet were also taken to area hospitals in stable conditions. The driver of the Chevrolet was evaluated and determined not to be impaired.

The investigation is continuing.
