driving at night in HoustonI-45 Gulf Freeway

The I-45 Gulf Freeway was the first freeway built in Texas and connects downtown Houston to Galveston. As the population in the area has continued to grow over time, the freeway has become more congested and accidents have become more frequent. If you were involved in a collision, you must call an attorney at once.

Two Crashes Lead to a Fatality

According to KHOU, the Gulf Freeway near Dixie Farm Road was shut down one evening after two crashes. After the first crash occurred, the driver got out of his car to check on damages. At this point, a second accident happened in the same location and the car hit the person who had gotten out of his car. While it is important to check on the damage you or your vehicle have sustained after a crash, it is also imperative that you look out for your safety. If you have been in a crash, call the police so they can help control the scene and document your damages.
