A woman has died after being struck and killed by a permitless teen driver in an accident in southwest Houston. The accident took place yesterday afternoon, at about 12:25 p.m., on the southwest side of Houston at the intersection of Sovereign and United Drive.

Police state that the teen was driving west on United Drive. At the time of the accident, the permitless teen driver was attempting to make a left turn onto Sovereign when she struck and killed a woman walking across the street.

The driver and her mother, who was also in the car, remained on the scene and contacted the local authorities for help. Although the unlicensed teen was not speeding, the pedestrian succumbed to her injuries, and was pronounced dead at the scene.
