Susan Young: Dies Using Heights Boulevard Jogging Trail
The jogging path along the median on Heights Boulevard is a great asset -- a nice trail, nice neighborhood, nice vibe.
But you're crossing side streets every so often, and people -- you have to pay attention.
A 38-year-old woman died this weekend after being hit by a car at 11th Street.
Houston police say Susan Young, according to witnesses, "appeared to be jogging and listening to music when she ran into the street" on October 5. She was taken to the Memorial Hermann Hospital, but died Saturday, police say.
She was hit by a Chevy Malibu going westbound. The driver of that car, who no doubt is traumatized, "had a green light and the right of way at the intersection," witnesses said, according to HPD. No charges have been filed.
Jog safely, people.
