HOUSTON - A woman is in custody in connection with a hit-and-run accident that left three teenagers dead.

Raquel Vasquez-Hernandez, 23, was arrested Saturday and charged with four counts of failure to stop and render aid.

The accident happened around 2:30 a.m. Saturday at the intersection of Woodbridge Drive and the South Loop feeder road.

According to Houston police, a white Chrysler 300 was speeding southbound on Woodridge and ran a red light. The Chrysler then slammed into the side of a blue Chevy traveling eastbound on the South Loop feeder road.

Police said Vasquez-Hernandez then ran away from the scene, leaving the Chrysler behind.

According to investigators, there were six teenagers inside the Chevy -- four males and two females. Three of them died at the scene.

On Sunday, the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences identified the victims as 19-year-old Allyssa Munoz, her brother 15-year-old Brett Suarez and 14-year-old Carlos Cisneros.

Munoz and Suarez's sister, 17-year-old Kristen Suarez, was also in the car at the time of the crash. Kristen Suarez told Local 2 she was asleep in the front passenger's seat at the time of the crash and woke up to strangers asking if she was okay.

The father of the three siblings told Local 2 his children were all very close and were heading home from a party at the time of the crash. According to their dad, Allyssa leaves behind a 16-month-old daughter. Brett Suarez would have been a sophomore next fall at CyLakes High School.

Investigators said they are still looking for another person who was in the car with Vasquez-Hernandez, but fled after the crash.

The conditions of the two other teens who were taken to the hospital following the crash are unknown.
