Halloween Tragedy: 5-Year-Old Killed in Traffic Accident
A terrible Halloween for one family.
The five-year-old girl, whose name has not been released, was in the 7800 block of Boone on the southwest side, accompanied by adults, about 8:10 p.m. when the incident occurred.
"The victim stepped into the street and was struck by a green Chevrolet Venture traveling northbound on Boone," HPD said. "The victim was transported to the hospital. The male driver of the Venture, 65, was questioned and released."
An investigation showed the driver was not intoxicated.
The identity of the girl is being withheld pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences, police say.
