A 15-year-old girl was killed Sunday morning after she strayed into the road and was hit by a van in northwest Harris County.

Just before 3 a.m. a group of teens was walking along the 111200 block of Veterans Memorial, in an area without  sidewalks. 

The driver of a white Astro van headed southbound saw the teens, but still crashed into the 15-year-old after she edged out into the roadway, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office. Afterward, the victim was moved to a nearby parking lot for medical attention but she died at the scene. 


Another girl was also injured in the wreck and taken to the hospital. Neither of the victims were immediately identified. 

The van driver stopped and answered questioned and was released without charges, but the case is still being investigated by the sheriff’s Traffic Enforcement Division.
