Deputies: Possible street racing leads to deadly accident

1 dead, several hurt

HOUSTON - One person died and several others were injured in a high-speed crash in northwest Harris County.

Deputies said two vehicles were speeding along Bammel North Houston around 9 p.m. Friday, when they slammed into a car at the intersection of Beltway 8.

The driver of the car they hit died at the scene. A male passenger inside that car was rushed to the hospital.

Investigators said two of the suspected speeders were also taken to the hospital in stable condition.

Deputies said the suspects may have been racing.  Deputies are trying to figure out who ran the red light, and whether alcohol played a role in the accident.

So far, no charges have been filed.

The name of the victim was not released.
