Posted on Sunday, February 17th, 2019 at 10:43 pm    

A car accident on West Bellfort Avenue caused the death of an elderly woman Saturday night in Meyerland.

According to initial reports, the wreck happened around 7:02 p.m at 4998 block of West Bellfort Avenue. Details surrounding the crash are not immediately available but it was determined that a car failed to yield at the intersection prompting a collision with another vehicle.

One woman was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency crews. The driver of one of the vehicles involved was taken to a hospital for treatment. The extent of his injuries was not released.

Local authorities are still gathering information to determine liability. The investigation is underway.

Our deepest sympathies go out to the families of the injured victim. We pray for their fast recovery. We strongly believe that the Houston Police Department will do everything to bring those responsible to justice.

Car collisions are extremely prevalent in Texas. According to the Texas Department of Transportation, one person is getting injured in approximately two minutes. Unfortunately, despite the government’s aggressive efforts to educate drivers about safety, the cases of speeding, driving under the influence, and negligence are still on the rise. In fact, most of the common causes of accidents in the state are due to the driver’s lack of awareness and precaution.

Knowing the statistics helps us to be more aware of how our choices can affect other people’s lives. For instance, driving while under the influence of alcohol and illegal drugs dramatically increases your risk of being involved in a crash by roughly 16% and 24%, respectively. While these cases are extremely dangerous, these can be prevented by making the right decisions. So before hitting the road, know that car accidents leave scars and trauma that can be devastating for the victims. For this reason, it is important that you take all the necessary precautions
