HARRIS COUNTY, Texas — Three people died and two people were critically injured Sunday in a major two-vehicle crash in northwest Harris County near Jersey Village.

This happened at about 7:53 a.m. in the 12200 block of FM 529 at Fairview.

Investigators said the driver along with three other passengers were in a 2012 Honda Accord traveling westbound on FM 529. At the same time, an unknown driver riding in a 2006 Ford F150 was traveling eastbound on FM 529 when the driver attempted to turn left into a private parking lot.

The driver allegedly failed to yield to the Honda, causing the Honda to strike the Ford.

The three passengers inside of the Honda all died due to their injuries from the crash. Investigators said two of them were not wearing a seatbelt.

The driver of the Honda was taken to a nearby hospital in critical condition. 

The driver of the Ford was also not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from his truck during the crash. He was taken to a hospital in critical condition. 

Speed and alcohol/drugs may have been the cause of this crash, investigators said. 

This case is still under investigation.
