A toxicology test of the driver has been ordered following a fatal Houston car accident.
A man was driving a vehicle with two flat tires when he crashed into the side of a Kansas City Southern train in southwest Houston. The Houston auto accident occurred in the early morning hours of Monday, August 24, 2009. The driver died at the accident scene.
According to a witness, the unidentified driver was speeding and hit a sign before slamming into the moving train. The crash took place at Fondren and S. Main at approximately 5:30 AM. The witness also told police that there were sparks flying from both rear wheels of the vehicle.
At the time of the accident, the stop signal light was illuminated on the railroad and the crossing arm was lowered. The train conductor didn’t notice that a car had hit the train, but was stopped a couple of miles away by the police.
