In the wee hours of the morning, U.S. Army veteran and University of Houston-Clear Lake officer, 56-year-old Joe Segovia was in his uniform headed to work in his SUV, as usual. That’s when a wrong way driver hit Segovia’s car head on.
Both Segovia and the wrong-way driver were killed on impact, and it’ll take a while for police to figure out why the driver got on the freeway going the wrong direction.
Segovia was with the University’s Police Department for less than a year, but the campus P.D. says he will be sorely missed.
This wrong-way driving is a trend that’s become way too prevalent in the Bayou City. Maybe if our “Wrong Way” road signs read, “Wrong Way to Die,” people would pay closer attention!
