Traffic Incident at 19298 Space Center Boulevard

September 14, 2007 - Houston police are investigating a fatal traffic accident at 19298 Space Center Boulevard about 3:15 a.m. today (September 14).

HPD Mobility Incident Management Division Sergeant D. S. Runyan and Officer D. Hall reported:

A late model GMC pick-up occupied by two males was travelling northbound on Space Center Boulevard at a high rate of speed. The pick-up left the roadway on the right side and appear to overcorrect when it slid sideways into the median. The pick-up then rolled several times ejecting both occupants. One of the males, in his early twenties, was pronounced dead at the scene and the other was taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital by life flight.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
