Just after 10:00p.m. Tuesday night a Honda Civic running northbound on US 59 at a high rate of speed passed witnesses on the inside left shoulder then made an abrupt change of direction crossing all lanes of the freeway. The vehicle continued across the grassy median and the feeder. Once it crossed the feeder it struck the control box which powers the over head illumination lights for the freeway. The vehicle continued across East Hammond Road tearing the stop sign and one-way sign completely out of the ground. At that point it started to flip ejecting one black male ion his twenties out. The second black male who was also in his 20’s was trapped in the vehicle. Porter Fire Department responded and cut the roof off the vehicle to remove the victim,.
One of the victims who was in critical condition was taken by MCHD to Hermann Hospital in Houston. The second victim was transported to Hermann Hospital in Houston by Life Flight. Both were in critical condition.
It is still undetermined who the driver of the two were. There were no seatbelts worn.
