Pritchard reported. “The driver of a maroon Mini Cooper, traveling northbound on the Gulf Freeway, braked to avoid striking the Jaguar. The driver of a black 2012 Ford Expedition, also traveling northbound, was unable to stop and struck the rear of the Mini Cooper. The vehicle continued for a short distance before coming to a stop. The driver of the Mini Copper died at the scene.”
