HOUSTON, TX -- A 25-year-old woman has died following a two-vehicle crash late last Tuesday, November 21, on the Katy Freeway in west Houston, reports ABC13.

The accident happened on the westbound freeway (Interstate 10) near State Highway 6, in the Energy Corridor area. It was first reported shortly after 11:00 p.m.

A preliminary investigation found that the woman was driving a Hyundai Sonata when she made an unsafe lane change, cutting into the path of an 18-wheeler. The move caused the big rig to strike the Hyundai, sending both vehicles crashing into the HOV lane.

Following the crash, the woman was trapped in the wreckage of the Hyundai and had to be extricated by Houston Fire Department crews. She was rushed to an area hospital, where she died Friday, November 24, confirmed officials. Her identity has not been disclosed at this time.

Houston Police Department officials say the driver of the 18-wheeler, a 61-year-old man, cooperated with an investigation and was determined to be not impaired at the time of the crash.

An investigation remains ongoing.
