2 killed, child critically hurt in Greater Hobby Area crash
HOUSTON, TX — A woman and a man died Sunday morning after a single-vehicle accident in southeast Houston that left a child critically injured, according to the Houston Police Department.
The HPD Vehicular Crimes Division said the fatal wreck occurred in the 8300 block of Fuqua Street, in the Greater Hobby Area. It was first reported at around 8:50 a.m.
A preliminary investigation shows a 34-year-old woman was driving a maroon Volkswagen Tiguan eastbound at high speeds. At one point, the vehicle traveled off the roadway and across the median before entering the westbound side. After crossing all westbound lanes, the vehicle veered off the roadway onto the opposite side and collided with a tree.
Responding Houston Fire Department paramedics pronounced both the female driver and the front seat passenger, a 37-year-old man, deceased at the scene.
First responders rushed the backseat passenger, an eight-year-old girl, to a local hospital where she was listed in critical condition.
No other injuries were reported, and no other vehicles were involved.
The HPD continues to investigate.
