Popular Houston socialite Peter 'PJ' Simien remembered by FOX 26

An overnight fatal crash has left a lot of Houstonians stunned.

Local socialite Peter "PJ" Simien was killed about 2:30 a.m. Monday on I-10 Katy Freeway in a single-car accident.

His Jeep Wrangler veered into the TXDoT sand barrels at the exit ramp, and rolled over several times.

Simien was ejected from the vehicle. He died at the scene.

PJ was a friend of FOX 26, and CoCo Dominguez had the honor of covering him for several stories, including his Christmas tree giveaway, and his beloved dog Blaze, who, at one point, went viral and even got a shoutout from Jay-Z.

His last day was spent doing what he loved, being the life of the party.
