HOUSTON – A woman was killed early Sunday after a car crashed into a backyard where a Halloween party was under way, Harris County deputies said.

A white Camaro was traveling north on Old Greenhouse Road around 12:45 a.m. when the 21-year-old driver ran a stop sign and smashed through the wood fence of the home’s backyard, said Harris County deputy Sgt. Susan Cotter.

Cotter said the driver ran over four adults and killed a 38-year-old woman. The woman died at the scene.  Two people were taken to Hermann Hospital by Life Flight and one person was taken by ground ambulance. All three were listed in stable condition.

The driver fled on foot, and had not been caught Sunday morning, but investigators said they know his identity.

Cotter said the man was borrowing some else’s car.

“There (are) signs that alcohol was a factor in the crash,” said Cotter. “The vehicle smells like alcohol.”
