The Jeep continued westbound and struck a utility pole.

Two men, aged 23 and 26, who were inside the Maserati died in the crash, according to Police. Two other passengers, both 24, were taken to the hospital where one of them was listed in critical condition.

The driver of the Maserati ran from the crash scene but later came back where he was also taken to the hospital. His condition is unknown.

The driver and passengers of the Jeep fled the scene before officers arrived. No arrests have been made.

Anyone with information on the occupants of the Jeep is urged to contact the HPD Hit and Run Unit at 713-247-4072 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
