Houston wrecks hospitalize 4

A multi-car pile-up that occurred yesterday, Sept. 14, in Houston sent four people to area hospitals. Two of those hospitalized were Houston paramedics responding to an earlier collision, Houston police reported.

The accident happened on I-45 South on the stretch of highway between the exit on Scarsdale Blvd. and the San Houston Tollway. In the initial crash, which happened around 4:30 a.m., two cars collided and blocked the interstate near the Beltway by the Scarsdale Blvd. exit ramp.

While the circumstances of the first crash remain unclear at this time, it's reported that one of the drivers fled on foot from the accident scene.

Within a few short minutes, as an ambulance with the Houston Fire Department responded to the victims at the accident scene, a silver Toyota Corolla rammed into the emergency vehicle. The impact slammed the ambulance into the damaged vehicles.

The driver of the Toyota, who suffered life-threatening injuries in the accident, was extricated from the wreckage by rescue crews. He was taken via LifeFlight helicopter to Houston's Memorial Hermann Hospital, authorities with HPD reported.

Those with nonlife-threatening injuries, i.e., a driver from the initial accident and the two paramedics, were also admitted to the hospital following the harrowing crash.

Delays were apparent on several bus routes for METRO after the early-morning collision shut down the Gulf Freeway's southern lanes. Traffic was diverted at the Fuqua exit.

If you suffered injuries following a wreck that was caused by another at-fault driver, you may be able to seek financial compensation from the driver(s) whose negligence caused the accident.
