Police said they suspect the woman was driving on the wrong side of the street down Mykawa Road when she veered and lost control of the car, slamming into a concrete barrier around 5 a.m. Her three-year-old and eight-year-old sons were passengers in the car. Just before the wreck, the woman reportedly picked the boys up from their father’s home.
First responders transported the mother and young boys to a nearby hospital, where the youngest son later died, police said. Houston Police Department Sgt. Thomas Fendia said investigators believe the child was in a car seat but doesn’t believe the car seat was the right size or that the child was correctly buckled in.
An investigation into the crash is ongoing.
