A Houston teenager reportedly fled an armed driver on Tuesday when he was dipped into a red light at an intersection and hit the driver's side of a lorry, killing a 30-year-old woman.
The 14-year-old driver said he had fled from a motorist who had pointed a semi-automatic weapon at him before dashing through the intersection and breaking into the woman's Ford F-150 lorry. She was declared dead at the scene.
Officers from the Harris County Sheriff's Office said the teenager and two young passengers had thrown eggs at other cars when one of the drivers swung a firearm and chased them.
