HARRIS COUNTY, Texas -- Officials say a man maneuvering his pickup truck to interfere with a vehicle driven by his wife instead collided head-on with another vehicle, killing that vehicle’s driver and severely injuring her young son.

The accident happened on FM-1942 near Garth Road just before 11 a.m. Sunday, the Harris County Sheriff's Office said.

According to deputies, the man apparently had been trying to force his wife off the road as part of a dispute between them. Sheriff’s officials say charges against the pickup driver were pending following the results of tests on his blood.

Officials say Tania M. Vercher of Baytown was killed and her son was taken to the hospital in critical condition following the wreck.

The suspect's wife was uninjured in the incident.
