07.02.23 Major Accident/Suspected Fatality (Update: Statement Below from Harris County Sheriff)

This accident around 1 p.m. Sunday, July 2nd. The video contains the statement of an eyewitness. The accident occurred in the 4200 block of W. Cedar Bayou Lynchburg in Baytown.

Statement from Harris County Sheriff Gonzalez:

Ed Gonzalez@SheriffEd_HCSO·It is not ok to let your toddler or small child ride in a vehicle using just a seat belt. The risk of serious injury or death increases significantly when a child is not secured in a proper car seat or restraint.

Ed Gonzalez@SheriffEd_HCSOUpdate: driver is a Hispanic male (40) and toddler is 3. Driver, suspected of being intoxicated, left the roadway, ultimately striking a utility pole. Both were ejected. The adult possibly used the adult seat belt on the toddler, which was not the proper restraint.
