A 39-year-old woman has died after the Uber she was riding in was rear-ended over the weekend. The accident occurred early Saturday morning, in the southbound lanes of Us-59 near the Newcastle exit.

The uber was driving in the southbound lanes of the Southwest Freeway. Houston police state that the vehicle, a blue Mitsubishi Lancer, began experiencing mechanical issues on the Southwest Freeway near Newcastle, coming to a stop in a moving lane.

The accident occurred when a truck slammed into the back of the Uber, killing the woman inside. The Uber driver, a 50-year-old, was transported to the hospital, and had broken several ribs. The driver of the truck that rear-ended the Uber, a 30-year-old man, was reportedly uninjured, and stayed at the scene. He was not charged.
