Wrong-way driver killed in ‘double-fault’ crash on Gulf Freeway

HOUSTON – A wrong-way driver was killed by a suspected drunk driver on the Gulf Freeway early Monday.

While going wrong-way in southbound lanes, a Toyota Corolla became disabled after striking a black Nissan.

The wrong way driver exited his vehicle in moving lanes of traffic on the southbound lanes. At the same time, a black Buick sedan was traveling from the southbound 59 to the southbound Gulf Freeway at a high rate of speed.

The Buick then crashed into the disabled Toyota Corolla, killing the pedestrian at the scene.

The driver of the Buick admitted to drinking to officers. He was transported to the hospital with minor injuries.

At this time, the crash is considered a ‘double at fault’ crash.
