An unidentified woman is hovering between life and death after driving into a parked 18-wheeler. She is at Memorial Hermann in what is described as extremely critical condition. Authorities still do not know why she ran her Jeep into the parked big rig on Timber Creek near Highway 6 around 10:15pm last night.

"Anyone who drives this street knows that there are vehicles here all times of the day and night, so we don't know if speed was a factor," said Deputy Dwayen Soots with the Harris County Sheriff''s Department. "We don't know if there are any kind of medical conditions at this time. We don't know if she was intoxicated on either alcohol or drugs."

Harris County deputies are still investigating the crash.
