Woman Killed and Five Injured in New Caney Car Crash on Interstate 69

New Caney, Texas (February 26, 2021) – A mother was killed, and five other people were injured Thursday night after a tire flew off a pickup truck and crashed into a vehicle in New Caney, according to authorities.

The deadly accident happened around 7:00 p.m., February 25, on Interstate 69, about 30 miles north of Houston.

Authorities said a tire came off a truck that was traveling northbound on the interstate, and it crashed through the windshield of another pickup truck that was traveling southbound.

After the tire struck the windshield, the southbound pickup rear-ended another vehicle that was occupied by a father and his three children.

The driver of the southbound truck was pronounced dead at the scene. Her name has not been released. Her 17-year-old son was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

The father and his three kids were also taken to the hospital, where they were listed in stable condition.

The troopers are investigating the crash. Anyone who witnessed the crash is asked to call the DPS New Caney Office.

“When a person has suffered a grave personal injury in an accident due to someone else’s negligence, the most overwhelming emotion they feel is a sense of injustice. They often ask how such a life-altering event could have happened to them,” attorney Joel A. Gordon said. “The next question usually is, who can help me?” Mr. Gordon added.

A legal advocate can represent an injury victim or the family of a deceased victim. The attorney will file a claim on behalf of the victim and will have the responsibility of citing existing codes, laws or statutes which were violated.
