HOUSTON, TX – A teen hoped over a barrier wall to her death after being involved in a single-vehicle crash on the Sam Houston Tollway, KTRK reports.

According to witnesses, the 17-year-old girl was confused and disoriented immediately after the wreck. She was likely afraid of the oncoming traffic and unaware of the drop on the other side of the wall.

Dispatchers sent police to the crash site after midnight. They suspect the victim died on impact.

It is unclear precisely where on the Tollway the accident took place.
