Two people have died after a red light runner caused a crash in northwest Houston. Authorities say that the accident occurred at the 5300 block of Hollister Road, where it intersects with Highway 290, at about 11 p.m. on Thursday night. A man driving a pickup truck ran a red light, crashing into a sedan.

The red light runner, a 28-year-old man, was driving a white pickup truck eastbound in northwest Houston at the time of the crash. The at-fault driver ran a red light and then struck a Honda Civic crossing the intersection. The force of the impact caused the sedan to flip over multiple times and land near a tree. The driver, a 25-year-old man, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The passenger of the pickup truck, a 23-year-old woman, was ejected from the vehicle and also died at the scene of the accident. Her husband, the driver, was transported to a nearby hospital, with unknown injuries. The couple have a 9-month-old baby, who was not in the vehicle.

Police state that the at-fault driver showed no signs of intoxication, and no charges have been filed yet. They believe speed played a factor in the accident.
