Has a vehicle come screeching down the highway, driving the wrong way, right at you and your passengers lately here in Texas?

Texas roads can be a dangerous place when it comes to people driving the wrong way on streets and highways. Unfortunately, Texas has more wrong-way accidents causing deaths to one or more people than any other state in the USA, and in Texas, it’s Houston that has the most.

Here are just a few of the wrong-way accidents that have happened in the Houston area in the last four months:
January 8, 2022. Two people were killed in a wrong-way crash when a Chevy Equinox going the wrong way slammed into a private ambulance on Westpark Tollway near Fondren.

January 28, 2022. A woman was killed, and two others were injured when a truck heading the wrong way crashed into them on Spur 527 and 59.

February 14, 2022. A woman was killed in a roll-over crash when the pickup truck she was riding in drove the wrong way and struck a utility pole near the University of Houston.

March 14, 2022. A double-fault, wrong-way crash caused a death and injuries to others on the Gulf Freeway, just past Scott St.

March 20, 2022. A wrong-way crash occurred involving a Constable Precinct 5 vehicle and SUV that was driving the wrong way on Sam Houston Highway, injuring one person.

April 18, 2022. A wrong-way driver was pulled out of a fiery crash on SH-288.

Research by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety developed a profile for people who are most likely to cause a wrong-way accident. They are usually driving at night, alone, and drunk. Alcohol impairment is the most significant factor leading to fatalities in wrong-way crashes. These accidents usually occur at high speeds, on highways, and on weekends.
