Good Samaritan changing tire struck and killed on 610 South Loop

A good deed turned tragic late last night on Houston’s South 610 Loop. A man stopped to help two other motorists involved in a minor accident was killed when a second crash happened. The two vehicles involved in the first accident came to a stop in travel lanes, HPD say, when a passing driver stopped and exited his vehicle to see if anyone needed assistance. An approaching car then rear-ended the Good Samaritan’s sedan, and the man tried to run across the freeway to avoid being struck. A passing SUV was unable to avoid the man and struck him. He was rushed to the hospital but was pronounced dead. A total of five vehicles were involved in the accident which happened near Stella Link. Channel 11’s story. Channel 13’s story.
