Houston, TX (December 26, 2021) – An auto accident reported in the Houston area on Friday evening has claimed the life of one man and woman. At around 8:40 p.m., on December 24, calls for assistance came in surrounding an auto accident on South Gessner Road.
Reports from the Houston Police Department show that Juan Sapon was stopped at a stop sign with his Camry at the intersection of South Gessner Road and Neff Street. As Sapon attempted to cross through the intersection, a speeding pickup truck traveled through the area and crashed into his vehicle.
Sapon and his juvenile passenger were both ejected from the vehicle. The two victims suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene.
The driver of the pickup truck, 20-year-old Alessio Bevinetto, fled the scene of the accident. He was later apprehended by the police.
At this time, investigations surrounding the accident are underway.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the families of Juan Sapon and the child who lost their life in this accident. Our thoughts are with them at this time.
Fatal Car Accidents in Texas
Motor vehicle accidents in Texas claim the lives of nearly 4,000 people every year. In many cases, victims suffer fatal injuries in accidents due to the negligent actions of other drivers sharing the road. We see countless people suffer fatal injuries due to drivers who speed, run red lights, or engage in other reckless behaviors while operating their vehicles.
