The Houston Police Department is investigating a fatal traffic accident at 200 West Loop North about 12:40 a.m. on Sunday.
The identity of the male victim, 26, is pending notification to family members by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.
“The driver of a white Chevrolet Tahoe was fleeing a previous accident he was involved in when he attempted to make a turn from the West Loop North service road onto Woodway,” HPD Vehicular Crimes Division Sergeant T.

There were no other persons nor vehicles involved in this accident.”
The investigation is continuing.
