HOUSTON (KTRK) -- One person has been killed and another injured in a major wreck on Highway 3 in southeast Houston.
The accident happened at 12:40pm on Highway 3 at FM 1959, just outside the entrance to Ellington Field.
Houston police say the 63-year-old driver of a red Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck is believed to have suffered a medical episode of some sort before losing control and slamming into a gray gray Volkswagen Golf, killing a 39-year-old woman who was driving it.
After the impact, the pickup swerved to the right and struck a guardrail. The Volkswagen spun out to the left and came to a stop in the driveway of a gas station.
The driver of the Volkswagen was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Chevrolet was transported to Clear Lake Regional Hospital in critical condition. Their names have not been released.
