DOUBLE FATAL CRASH AFTER DRIVER SLAMS INTO BACK OF DISABLED CAR CARRIER

Just after 8pm Friday night the driver of a utility truck was witnessed by any as he drove at a high rate of speed on the shoulder on I-45 just north of North Loop 610. A short time before the driver of an 18-wheeler auto transport broke down and was parked on the shoulder with flashers and safety triangles set up. The utility truck slammed into the rear of the 18-wheeler killing the driver of the utility truck instantly. A small fire broke out under the hood which was quickly extinguished by the 18-wheeler driver. The two passengers of the utility truck were transported to Ben Taub Hospital in critical condition. One died on arrival at the hospital. According to HPD Investigators, the impact pushed the parked 18-wheeler 15 feet forward.

The freeway remained closed until just before midnight.

    It is very sad that someone was killed in this accident. I wouldn’t wish this upon anybody. Now this trucker that is hauling these cars is going to have to go after the Utility truckers insurance to pay for the damages to his hauler and any damages to the vehicles on the hauler. I own a car shipping company called Car Shipping Carriers ( http://www.carshippingcarriers.com/car-shipping-companies ) and I know this type of thing happens, but I just wish people would be safer on the roads. :-/
