Houston police are investigating after a woman was killed and two passengers injured in a single-vehicle accident this weekend.
HPD says at around 2:30 a.m. Sunday the victim was driving a silver Kia at an apparent high rate of speed eastbound on the South 610 Loop when she failed to maintain a single lane and struck a guard wall, causing the vehicle to overturn.
The driver and two passengers, a female and a male, were ejected from the vehicle. Both females were transported to an area hospital where the 21-year-old driver was pronounced dead. Her identity is pending notification to family members by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.
The female passenger suffered serious, but non-life threatening injuries. The male passenger was uninjured.
No other motorists or vehicles were involved in this accident.
