A woman tragically lost her life in a three-car accident on the night of May 27, according to local sources. Texas police in west Houston confirmed the crash that claimed the life of the unknown woman. As with many motor vehicle accidents, this one is still under investigation. 

According to the limited information available in the current report, the woman was a passenger in an eastbound vehicle traveling on Sam Houston Parkway around 9:30 on the night in question. Apparently, a northbound vehicle struck the one she was occupying in the middle of an intersection. It is unclear which driver was at fault for the collision. 

The woman died of her injuries, though it is unclear whether she was pronounced dead at the scene or later at a hospital. Both drivers suffered injuries as well, though neither appeared to be in life-threatening condition. There were other passengers in both vehicles, but police have not released their identities or their conditions. It has been confirmed that all were transported to local hospitals. Police also mentioned that a DWI task force was on hand to determine whether intoxication played a role in the accident. 

If either driver is found to have been negligent and/or intoxicated in a way that materially contributed to the crash, that individual could face jail time or other criminal consequences. Even if no charges are filed, Texas law allows the injured parties and the family of the deceased to file wrongful death and/or personal injury lawsuits against one or both drivers. This is a common way for families to recover damages incurred by motor vehicle accidents
