Caught on Camera: Driver running red light causes crash then flees the scene

November 26, 2022 - The Houston Police Department can now add a white SUV to their long list of vehicles that have fled the scene. https://www.youtube.com/embed/H1Uj9a1J-vA The accident happened at 11:42 p.m. in the 600 block of Jefferson Street at Smith Street when a white SUV traveling eastbound on Jefferson decided that red lights were not worth waiting at. Very often we see drivers running a red light a couple of seconds after the light has turned green for the other drivers that have the right of way. This happens so often that many of us decide to wait a couple of seconds before proceeding through our very own green light, legally. Sometimes, that couple of seconds is not enough. The white SUV in the video that caused the accident traveled through the intersection near...
