One man has died and three others have been injured after a car accident caused by a teen drunk driver late Monday evening.

The accident occurred last night at about 9:30 p.m., at the 1800 block of Fry Road.

At the time of the collision, a man driving a Honda Odyssey was attempting to exit a McDonald’s parking lot and turn left onto Fry Road when he was struck by a speeding silver Hyundai Sonata heading southbound and failed to yield right of way.

The force of the collision caused the Honda to spin several times and strike a Dodge Challenger that was traveling north in the third lane. The driver of the Odyssey was pinned inside of his vehicle, and the Harris County Sheriff’s Office reported he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officials state that the driver of the Sonata, a 17-year-old boy, had two other teenagers in the vehicle. All three of them were transported to a nearby hospital with non life-threatening injuries. There, the teen driver that caused the car accident showed signs of intoxication, and was charged with driving drunk. The driver of the Dodge Challenger was not injured.
