Thieves Steal Groceries From SUV After Fatal Crash

Witnesses of a fatal car crash in Houston, Texas say that thieves stole groceries from the wrecked vehicle instead of trying to help the victims.

A 23-year-old woman was killed on impact when she lost control of her Toyota 4Runner at around 5 p.m. Wednesday and collided with a tree, according to the Houston Chronicle. Her two sons, ages 4 and 6, were in the car and suffered non-life threatening injuries, according to ABC 13.

Before medics got to the scene however, multiple people were allegedly spotted taking the family's groceries and fleeing the scene.

Houston Police Department spokesman Victor Senties said police may pursue criminal charges based on the eyewitness accounts, according to Dreamin' Demon.
