Texas mom dead after tire smashed into the front windshield
Carol Hardy and her 17-year-old son Kayden were on the way home from the teen’s baseball game when the tragic accident occurred on Eastex Freeway in New Caney around 7:15 p.m., KTRK reported citing officials.
Hardy, 52, was driving a white GMC pickup on the southbound lanes when a wheel from a Dodge pickup truck that was heading north flew off and smashed into the mother’s windshield, killing her instantly.
Her son was asleep in the front passenger seat at the time. He went to a local hospital to be treated for injuries but was later released, according to KTRK.
Hardy’s pickup hit a nearby Buick that was carrying a family of four; they too were taken to a hospital and were in stable condition, KRIV reported.
The 16-year-old driver of the pickup truck wasn’t injured. No charges have been filed.
