Houston Chronicle Sunday - - CITY | STATE -

A mo­torist who crashed in north­west Har­ris County late Fri­day was crit­i­cally in­jured af­ter he left his ve­hi­cle and was struck on the high­way.

The col­li­sions hap­pened on slick roads around 9:30 p.m. on Texas 249 (the Tom­ball Park­way) near Cy­press­wood.

A south­bound ve­hi­cle struck some de­bris in the road, spun out and hit the el­e­vated free­way wall. Af­ter the crash, the mo­torist left his Mazda hatch­back and at­tempted to run across the free­way to safety but was struck by an­other ve­hi­cle trav­el­ing south­bound.

Har­ris County Sher­iff ’s Of­fice deputies and emer­gency per­son­nel re­sponded to the scene. The in­jured mo­torist was trans­ported to a lo­cal hospi­tal in crit­i­cal con­di­tion. His name was not re­leased.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors de­ter­mined that no al­co­hol was in­volved in ei­ther crash. The driver who hit the in­jured man is not ex­pected to face charges.
