HOUSTON—A 9-year-old boy died in a car crash that also left his 4-year-old twin sisters hospitalized, all while their mother watched from another vehicle nearby late Friday morning.

The woman’s fiancé was traveling on Edgebrook near Balcones in an SUV carrying the three children when the car rolled over multiple times and the children were ejected.

The mother was driving in a car trailing behind.

The driver and two surviving children were taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital.

It was unclear what the cause of the accident was on Friday afternoon, but police are investigating to determine if the mother had clipped the SUV or if the driver lost control trying to avoid hitting children playing in the street.
