HOUSTON – Houston police say a driver was seen slumped over his steering wheel before a fatal traffic accident Wednesday in the Museum District.

It happened at about 9:45 a.m. in the 1900 block of Binz Street.

Investigators said Joseph Doyle, 54, was driving a maroon Buick Enclave eastbound on Binz when witnesses reported seeing him slumped over the steering wheel.  The Buick then veered in the westbound lane of traffic and struck another vehicle, before leaving the roadway and striking a tree.

Doyle was pronounced dead at the scene. No other individuals were injured in the wreck.

Houston police are awaiting autopsy results in Doyle’s death.
