HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A child died this morning in a rollover crash in east Houston.
It happened on Maxey Road north of Woodforest Boulevard just before 1 a.m. Friday.
According to police, a woman was driving her Nissan southbound on Maxey at a high rate of speed when she lost control, went off the road, struck a sign, a light pole and then a concrete culvert.
The vehicle then flipped, ejecting a 7-year-old boy. That child died at the scene.
The driver, who police identified as the victim's mother, a 6-year-old boy and a 4-year-old girl who were also in the vehicle were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Police stated finding alcohol bottles, with at least one of them open in the vehicle. It was not immediately known whether the driver consumed alcohol before the crash or if the bottle was open due to it.
Police are awaiting toxicology tests to determine whether impairment was a factor.
This reckless woman was drunk as most of the drunk-related accidents occur in the early a.m hours, like in this instance. As you can see from the pictures above, Maxey Road is straight and very wide in that area. Only drunk and/or drugged people have hard time staying on the road, like this terrible "mother".
