The identity of the deceased female victim is pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.

HPD Vehicular Crimes Division Sergeant M. Warhol and Officer S. Le reported:

The victim, a pedestrian, walked - not in a crosswalk - across the eastbound lanes at the above address.  She stood in the median and then proceeded to walk across the westbound lanes.  At that time, one vehicle swerved to avoid hitting the female.  However, a second vehicle, a silver Toyota Corolla, was unable to swerve in time and struck the female.  Paramedics transported the victim to an area hospital where she was pronounced deceased.  The female driver of the Toyota was questioned and released without charges.
