HOUSTON (AP) — A man is dead in a Houston-area car crash and his wife injured after authorities say his car swerved into oncoming traffic.

KHOU-TV reports (http://bit.ly/U5lR5A ) that the man was driving a Jeep that went into oncoming traffic on Boudreaux Road in northwest Harris County. His vehicle collided with a Chrysler 300 sedan. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office says the driver of the Chrysler tried to go into the oncoming lane to avoid the Jeep, but the two crashed when the Jeep driver returned to his lane.

His wife was hospitalized and reported in stable condition.

Neither person was identified.

Four people in the Chrysler were also hospitalized.
