Incident at 4900 Arizona
February 13, 2007 -- Houston
police are investigating a fatal traffic accident in the 4900
block of Arizona about 11:30 p.m. on Saturday (February 10).
The male victim’s identity is pending notification
to family members by the Harris County Medical Examiner’s
HPD Mobility Incident Management Division Sergeant
R.C. Gonzales and Officer S. Johnson reported:
A blue Chevrolet Tahoe was south on Arizona entering
the intersection at Lenore when it was struck by a silver Chevrolet
Malibu traveling west on Lenore. The driver of the Malibu ran
the stop sign at this intersection and the impact caused the Tahoe
to lose control and roll onto its roof. The driver of the Malibu
continued west and struck a residence in the 8200 block of Lenore,
causing slight damage.
Witnesses observed two males, one believed to be the driver of
the Tahoe, leaving the scene of the accident. The deceased victim
was a passenger in the front seat of the Tahoe. Beer bottles were
found in both vehicles. Toxicology tests will determine if alcohol
was a factor.
The investigation is continuing.
