A woman whose car ran out of gas was fatally struck by another car in northwest Harris County. It happened just before 8pm along Veterans Memorial near West Road. The 28-year-old driver got out of her vehicle, got a gas can and was filling up her car when she was hit. Two vehicles came up from behind her vehicle, but only one was able to swerve out of the way in time.

The driver who hit the woman stopped and talked to deputies. The driver who was struck and killed did not have her flashers turned on.
