A young, 23 year old woman was involved in a fatal car crash that left her dead, but instead of calling for help, witnesses stole the groceries out of her car.
The Houston Chronicle reports:
The woman’s sons, ages 4 and 6, were in the backseat and were transferred to a hospital with broken bones but no life-threatening injuries, said HPD spokesman Victor Senties.
The mother failed to yield when she was leaving a private drive around 5 p.m., Senties said.
She then lost control of her Toyota 4Runner and hit a tree after a Mercedes E320 traveling northbound at 9600 Fondren Road clipped her. Police said she was travelling at a high speed.
According to ABC 13 news, eyewitnesses told police they saw people steal groceries out of the dead woman’s SUV.
The TV station said the driver had attended a ceremony at her 4-year-old’s elementary school, went to a grocery store, dropped off a friend and then crashed her car on the way home.
She was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Mercedes was not injured.
