April 28, 2009 - Houston police are investigating a fatal traffic accident in the 1900 block of North Macgregor Way about 3:50 p.m. on Monday (Apr. 27).
The victim, Jack Roberts, 60, a retired Houston Police officer, was transported to Ben Taub General Hospital where he was pronounced dead. Mr. Roberts retired from HPD in March 2006.
HPD Vehicular Crimes Division Sergeant S. Sorge and Officer M. Lowder:
Mr. Roberts was traveling eastbound, in a gray Toyota Highlander, in the 1900 block of North Macgregor Way, when for some unknown reason, he drove to the right off the roadway and then struck a tree.
It is believed Roberts’ death was caused by a medical condition and not by the injuries he sustained during the accident.
The investigation is continuing.
