Unidentified Highway Construction Worker, Bayou Body Count No. 157

A drunk driver speeding on the North Freeway early Sunday morning crashed into a closed-off part of the road and killed a construction worker, Houston police say.

Allen Ka-Wong Kwan, 34, was driving a silver Infiniti G35 northbound at a high rate of speed about 3 a.m. Sunday in the 4100 block of the North Freeway when, according to police, he "passed through a construction area with workers present. The vehicle veered into the construction area...and struck one of the construction workers in the closed section of the freeway."

The worker was pronounced dead at the scene; his identity is being withheld pending verification.

Kwan has been charged with intoxication manslaughter.
