Traffic Incident at 12700 Greens Bayou
January 23, 2006 -- The cause
of a fatal traffic accident that occurred at 12700 Greens Bayou
on Sunday, January 22, 2006 at about 11:56 p.m. is being investigated
by the Houston police.
HPD Mobility Incident Management Division Officer
S.E. Bolton reported that evidence at the scene indicated that
a late-model Dodge pick-up truck, westbound on Greens Bayou from
Normandy was traveling at a high rate of speed when the vehicle
hit a curve, left the roadway and struck a tree. There are no
known witnesses to the accident.
The road in the area has twists and turns and
it appears the driver of the truck, James Anthony Francis of 15118
Mountain Height, failed to maintain control of his vehicle in
one of those turns and died from injuries sustained in the accident.
The Harris County Medical Examiners' Office will conduct toxicology
tests to determine if alcohol played a role in the accident.
