Houston, Texas (June 21, 2022) – A man was killed in a crash involving two vehicles Friday morning in Houston, according to the Houston Police Department.

Police said a white Honda Fit was turning from War Memorial Drive onto Clay Road when it was hit by a white Ford Maverick pickup truck that was heading eastbound on Clay Road.

Witnesses told the authorities that the pickup driver ran a red light.

The driver of the Fit, only identified as a 31-year-old man, was airlifted to Memorial Hermann – Texas Medical Center, where he later died from his injuries.

Alcohol or drugs were not considered a factor in the crash.
