Street Racers to Blame for Serious Car Accident on Houston’s I-45

Dec 18, 2020

Illegal street racing is being blamed for a fiery multi-car accident that left several people hospitalized on Houston’s North Freeway.

Drivers of other vehicles were trying to get out of the way of two racers who were speeding and weaving in and out of traffic. In doing so, a pickup truck with a man, woman and baby inside was rear ended by another car which sent the truck flying off the highway and caused the car to burst into flames. The truck landed on its roof on a feeder road 15-feet below the interstate. Miraculously, the baby in the truck was not injured, but the parents were hospitalized for their injuries. The racers got away and were not found.

Street racing is a big problem in Houston. Extreme danger results when racers drive at dangerously high speeds and weave in and out of traffic. The consequences are often horrific.
