Three Houston Teens Killed in Hit-and-Run Crash




    Police are searching for two people suspected of fleeing a Houston car crash in which three teenagers were killed.

    KPRC-TV reports the accident occurred around 2:30 a.m. Saturday on a freeway feeder road in the southeast part of the city.

    Houston police say a white Chrysler was speeding and ran a red light, hitting a blue Chevrolet. Six teenagers were inside the Chevrolet when it spun on impact, hitting a light pole. Police say the teens were on their way home from a party.

    Police said two teenage boys and one teenage girl died at the scene of the crash. Three other teens were rushed to a hospital.

    Police have not ruled alcohol use out as a factor. They said the occupants of the Chrysler fled on foot.
