A woman chasing after her husband and his lover was reportedly killed in a multiple cars collision on Thursday evening. The woman – identified as by her family as Nancy Acosta – began chasing after her husband, who was driving in a car with another woman.
During that chase, authorities said Acosta tried to ram her husband’s car several times.
“She was trying to run another vehicle off the road,” said Deputy Constavle D. Wilkie of the Harris County Precinct 3 Constable’s Office. “She started ramming him from behind and then she lost control and went into oncoming traffic.”
Eyewitnesses said Acosta slammed into the driver of a Honda CR-V and was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the other car was taken to Memorial Hermann Texas Trauma Institute by LifeFlight.
A family friend said Acosta, who is survived by three children, was heartsick and angry that her husband, Freddy Acosta, had been having an affair with another woman.
