A crash on State Highway 249 at Willow Chase killed the driver of the vehicle and seriously injured two passengers, and law enforcement suspect drunk driving played a role in the crash.  The one car accident happened at around 5:00am on the southbound SH 249 feeder road.  According to police, the driver appears to have bumped up onto the curb on the left side, after which the driver overcompensated and lost control.  The car then slid across the travel lanes, left the roadway and struck a wooden telephone pole.  The driver of the car died at the scene and the two passengers were transported to the hospital in serious but stable condition. A Houston Police Department investigator reported finding open alcohol containers throughout the vehicle and officers could also smell the odor of alcoholChannel 11’s report on the crash did not indentify the driver that died.
