At 320 Tuesday afternoon Needham Fire Department and MCHD were dispatched to a major accident on Carriage Hills Blvd north of FM 1488. When they arrived they found the female driver unresponsive. In addition there was a 20-month baby with serious facial trauma. The baby has been transported to Memorial Hospital in Houston by ground as no helicopters were flying in the bad weather.
At this hour one lane of Carriage Hills Blvd is closed and traffic is extremely heavy. DPS is continuing the investigation as it appears the drive may have been intoxicated. One witness reported the child standing in the drivers lap.
The baby is expected to survive.
We will update as soon as additional information is available.
