Houston, TX (June 15, 2022) – A motor vehicle accident reported in Harris County claimed the lives of two people. At around seven p.m., on June 12, emergency crews were dispatched to the scene of a motor vehicle accident on the Eastex Freeway.

Two other victims were transported to area hospitals for emergency medical treatment.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation by the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.
