A driver thought she was doing everything right when her car stalled out on the South Belt. Sadly while that woman was waiting in her car for her, another car rear-ended her vehicle, killing her.
The accident happened shortly before 6 a.m. Monday at 6000 South Sam Houston Parkway East service road. Houston police say the victim was in a blue Toyota Camry that was stalled in the right lane of the eastbound service road.
According to family members, she was on her way to work when she got a flat tire. She called someone for help and waited in her vehicle.
She was wearing her seat belt when the driver of a black GMC Sierra pickup truck traveling at a high rate of speed, struck her vehicle.
The 37-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene. Her identity is pending notification to family members by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.
The driver of the truck was questioned and police say alcohol does not appear to be a factor. There are no charges in the accident at this time, pending further investigation.
