18 wheeler accident on Highway 225 in Pasadena claims a life

An as-yet unnamed woman was killed today when her car was struck from behind by an 18-wheeler. The vehicles were on westbound Highway 225 near Preston when, according to media accounts, debris fell from a vehicle in front of the woman causing her to slow down. The 18-wheeler, approaching from behind, did not stop in time and drove partially over the rear of the woman’s vehicle, severely crushing it. Pasadena Police Department spokesman Vance Mitchell said the accident was under investigation and no decision has been made yet whether charges will be filed.

Very little detail was available but an 18-wheeler was involved in an accident with at least one other vehicle on Monday January 27th at around 12:50 p.m. The crash happened on the East 610 Loop at Highway 225. A Houston Transtar image on KHOU’s web site seems to show an 18-wheeler trailer resting on its side, possibly having crashed over a concrete retaining wall. No word on whether anyone was injured.
