Houston police are investigating a fatal traffic accident at 700 Greens Parkway about 11:50 a.m. on Saturday (Nov. 8).
The female driver, 19, was pronounced dead at the scene. Her identity is pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.
“The victim was driving a silver Ford Taurus at a high rate of speed eastbound on Greens Parkway and failed to stay in a single lane,” HPD Vehicular Crimes Division Sergeant L. Ross and Officer K.

The passenger, a one-year-old male, was transported to Texas Children’s Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.”
The investigation is continuing.
