HUFFMAN, TX (12/03/2016) — A multi-vehicle, head-on collision on Saturday night killed Courtney Anderson, a 7-YO child, and left several others injured.
According to authorities, a three-vehicle accident on FM 1960 near Grey Fox Drive in Huffman, Texas claimed the life of 25-year-old Courtney Anderson and a 7-year-old boy.
Police reported that at around 7:00 p.m., the driver of a white GMC Yukon was reportedly driving erratically at a high rate of speed when he or she clipped a gray Mazda sedan, driven by Anderson. The initial impact sent Anderson’s vehicle into oncoming traffic, causing a second collision with a red Dodge Durango.
The driver of the Durango was later identified as Angelica Salaz.
“She just saw lights coming toward her, and then they hit her,” said Jason Sullivan, the brother-in-law of the woman who was driving the red SUV. “She saw someone literally cross three lanes and come right at her.”
The Mazda carried five occupants: Anderson, along with her friend, her friend’s husband, and their two children. Anderson and one of the children—the 7-year-old boy—did not survive the wreck. The remaining three occupants were rushed to the hospital for treatment.
Salaz survived crash, but she reportedly sustained broken vertebrae and other injuries to her hip and knee.
The driver of the Yukon (who reportedly caused the initial impact) remained on scene and volunteered for a blood draw. Charges have not been filed, however an investigation is still pending.
