One killed in accident on South Main when Suzuki SUV made illegal u-turn

Several Houston media outlets are reporting a deadly crash in the 13700 block of South Main in Houston near Hillcroft at around 12:10am Wednesday June 29th. The names of the two drivers involved have not been released: after the wreck they were both rushed to Memorial Hermann Hospital where one driver, a man, was pronounced dead. The surviving driver apparently sustained a head injury, but fortunately he was conscious and talking at the accident scene and is expected to survive the crash. Houston Police Department said the driver of a Suzuki SUV made an illegal u-turn by driving over a grass median to turn from the northbound lanes to the southbound lanes on Main. A Ford Explorer traveling southbound collided with the Suzuki as it entered the southbound lanes. The driver of the Suzuki was killed.

The Houston Chronicle’s report is here. ABC Channel 13 News describes the Suzuki SUV as a minivan and does not mention an illegal u-turn, but says the minivan veered into oncoming lanes.
