HOUSTON, TX – The Houston Chronicle reports that a woman was killed in a possible drunk driving accident on US 290 this morning.

The driver of a Jeep Cherokee allegedly struck both a box truck and a Nissan that were stopped due to a prior crash near the intersection of US 290 and Antoine Drive. The driver of the Nissan and a passenger became trapped inside the crushed vehicle. The unidentified female driver was declared dead at an area hospital.
