Traffic Incident at 1400 West Sam Houston Parkway South

February 7, 2005 -- Houston police are investigating a fatal traffic accident that occurred at 1400 West Sam Houston Parkway South on Sunday, February 6, 2005 about 7:40 p.m.

HPD Traffic Division Investigator R. Kessler reported:

A white Nissan was stopped at a red light on the service road. An International commercial flatbed truck was stopped behind the Nissan. A gold four door Chevrolet Impala was in the same lane approaching the intersection when the vehicle was struck from behind by a black Chevrolet Lumina. According to the investigator, it appears the Lumina was traveling at such a high rate of speed that it pushed the Impala under the rear of the truck. All four occupants of the Impala were pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Lumina had multiple injuries and was transported to Ben Taub General Hospital. The names of the victims are pending identification from the Medical Examiner's Office.
