Driver in wreck checks on other victims, then kills himself

HOUSTON (AP) — Harris County sheriff’s deputies say a man responsible for a traffic wreck that involved multiple vehicles checked on people in damaged cars to make sure they were OK and then returned to his own vehicle where he shot and killed himself.
Sheriff Senior Deputy Thomas Gilliland says authorities are trying to determine why the man would “take his life on the scene for something as mundane as this four-car accident.”
His name hasn’t been immediately released.
The wreck occurred Sunday as the man was driving on the wrong side of a road in north Harris County.
One man involved in the wreck was treated at a hospital for minor injuries and released. Three other people weren’t hurt.
