Posted on Aug 04, 2009
Two people were killed within hours of each other in separate crashes in south Houston. The first Houston car accident occurred at approximately 9:45 PM in the 2600 block of Genoa Red Bluff.
The crash took place when a black Acura heading eastbound on Genoa Red Bluff attempted to pass a slow-moving vehicle and crashed head-on into a blue Suzuki motorcycle that was traveling westbound.
According to Houston Police Department spokesman Victor Senties, the 21-year-old motorcyclist was killed in the accident.
The other fatal collision occurred at approximately 1:45 AM in the 12200 block of Almeda Road. That car accident happened when a Honda Civic stopped at a traffic light was rear-ended by a red Toyota Tundra.
The female passenger in the Honda died and the driver was transported to the hospital in critical condition.
Senties said that the driver of the Toyota may face an intoxication manslaughter charge. The driver sustained only minor injuries.
