Driver killed in crash on Highway 288 at MacGregor

A driver was killed in a car accident at Highway 288 and MacGregor last night, though media accounts of how and why the accident differ. Channel 11’s report states that the driver of a dark blue compact sedan was”recklessly racing up an embankment” at the time of the crash, along with another driver in a white-colored car. One driver lost control and struck a support column of the freeway underpass: that driver then struck the other vehicle. Both drivers were taken to Ben Taub hospital where one died. Channel 13’s story on the other hand states the accident happened when the driver of the blue car was about to exit when he changed his mind at the last second, but lost control and struck a wall, causing the car to catch fire.
