HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A man was found shot in the head after his vehicle crashed into a pillar on a feeder road Friday night in southeast Houston, according to police.
Houston Police Department officers said they found the 59-year-old man on the 3500 block of the Gulf Freeway near a store on Scott Street around 9:30 p.m. with gunshot wounds to the head and neck.
Witnesses told police the car was going the wrong way when it slowly hit the pillar. A store clerk then reportedly saw the man inside the car and noticed he was shot.
