Six dead, 2 hospitalized in Houston horror smash: police

Six people are dead and two are injured after a two-car collision early Saturday in Houston, Texas, according to police.

The deadly incident took place at around 2 a.m. at the intersection of Fannin Street and Pierce Street where the driver of a black-colored Chrysler 300 sedan reportedly blew a red light before hitting an SUV, Megan Howard, the assistant chief of the Houston Police Department, said in a video posted to X.

The Chrysler was “going very fast at high velocity” southbound on Fannin Street when its driver ran a red light and plowed into a black-colored Acura SUV that was heading eastbound on Pierce Street, Howard said.
