HOUSTON - Two people have been charged in a fatal crash that left a woman dead and man in the hospital, according to authorities.

Chelsey Renee Dennis, 33, was charged with her second DWI and Tacuma Lee Fears, 43, was charged with being a felon in possession of a weapon and DWI, authorities said.

The crash occurred around 2 a.m. Sunday on the West Sam Houston Parkway near Bellaire Boulevard in Southwest Houston.

All northbound lanes were shut down for two hours.

Harris County Precinct 5 Constables' spokesman Jeff McShan said a black Cadillac stalled in a moving lane of traffic on the northbound side.

A white car came over the hill and slammed into the back of the Cadillac, ejecting a woman that was in the stalled car, authorities said. The woman died at the scene, officials said.

The male driver was transported to the hospital in stable condition, said McShan.

A pickup truck then rammed into the two wrecked cars, he said.
