Three people were injured in a crash involving a wrong-way driver on Monday evening. The accident occurred at about 9 p.m. on the Allen Parkway, near Stanford Street.
Officials say that the wrong-way crash occurred when a black pickup truck traveling the wrong direction on the Allen Parkway struck a white SUV. The driver of the pickup truck was driving west in the eastbound lanes, and driving without their lights on. The driver ran the red light at Taft Street, colliding head-on with the white SUV.
The force of the impact pushed the SUV 30 yards. Witnesses state there were two people in the pickup truck and one person in the SUV. Houston police reported that one of the people involved had life-threatening injuries, while the others suffered less serious injuries. Officials are still working to determine whether or not the wrong-way driver was under the influence.
