One woman is dead after driving the wrong way Saturday morning and crashing head-on into another vehicle on I-610 North.
According to Houston police, a deputy from the Harris County Precinct 3 Constable’s Office spotted the woman driving the wrong way for quite a way on Hardy Toll Road around 2:30 a.m.
“They tried to get her attention. Tried to get her to stop. They never went the wrong way with her, but they were on the other side of the freeway trying to get her to stop. She never did,” Lt. R. Willkins said.
He said after she made it to I-610 North, she crashed head-on into another vehicle with a male driver inside. The man was transported to the hospital in critical condition. The woman died at the scene.
At this time, investigators said it is unclear whether the woman was under the influence of drugs or alcohol. They don’t know if the weather played a role in the crash.
The identities of the parties involved have not been released.
