Houston police say a 31-year-old man was driving drunk when his SUV collided with a car and killed four people. The June 22 accident happened around 10:00 p.m. at the intersection of Synott and Beechnut. According to police, a Honda Civic was carrying a group of four people between 60 and 80 years old from a graduation party as it traveled down Synott. That's when police say the driver of a Champion Towncar SUV ignored the red light at Beechnut and collided into the side of the Civic.
Accidents are bound to happen as drivers take to the public roadways for a variety of reasons. For all drivers, especially drivers of commercial vehicles, making sure that everything on the vehicle is ready to go and in good operating condition prior to leaving on a drive is vital to help ensure the safety of everyone who will share the roadway with them. Anything that isn't in good operating condition on the vehicle can lead to a serious accident. A recent accident in Texas shows that even something as simple as a blown tire can have dire consequences.
