Yesterday afternoon, a 19-year-old died after a DUI incident that ejected her from her vehicle. According to KHOU11, the girl was struck after she and her passenger left a bank after a fight. The teen was driving without a seatbelt and with the door opened at the moment of the collision. This lead to her ejection and death at the scene of the incident. The other driver attempted to flee the scene but was apprehended and charged with DWI and failure to stop and render aid.
The two men involved in the initial bank altercation were arrested, and the one involved in the incident was uninjured.
