Speeding 19-year-old Driver Causes Deadly Crash in Mid-West Houston

Authorities are currently investigating a crash that occurred at 6300 Richmond Avenue in Mid-West Houston around 8:10 p.m. on Sunday, February 18.

The identities of the two individuals who lost their lives in the accident, a 30-year-old female and a male of unknown age, are awaiting confirmation by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.

According to preliminary reports, a black Toyota Camry was traveling westbound at a high speed near the mentioned address when the driver collided with the rear of a gray Toyota Scion, which was also heading westbound on Richmond. The impact caused the Scion to veer off the road and strike a tree, while the Camry hit another tree shortly thereafter.

The female driver of the Scion and one of her male passengers were pronounced dead at the scene by responding Houston Fire Department paramedics. Two juvenile passengers, aged 5 and 10, who were also in the Scion, sustained non-life-threatening injuries and were transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.

The 19-year-old male driver of the Camry was assessed and found not to be impaired. He was taken to an area hospital for further evaluation.

As of now, no charges have been filed in connection with the incident, as the investigation remains ongoing.
