HOUSTON, TX — A 76-year-old woman was killed Saturday morning when her car was hit by a suspected speeding driver in Houston’s Spring Branch East area, according to Houston Police Department.
The crash happened in the 7500 block of Hammerly Boulevard at around 10:50 a.m.
According to HPD’s Vehicular Crimes Division, the woman was driving a silver Honda CR-V north on Thonig Road when she began to cross Hammerly Boulevard after stopping at the intersection.
