HARRIS COUNTY, Texas– A teen is dead after a high-speed joy ride ended with a fatal crash Wednesday.
According to the Harris County Sheriffs Office, two brothers — ages 18 and 15 — were speeding southbound on Hwy 249 in a small Sedan around 10:30 p.m. when the older brother lost control of the car.
The car spun into the exit lane and slammed into a metal guard rail, peeling off the entire passengers side. The 15- year-old brother and another passenger were badly mangled by the metal guard rail and died at the scene.
The driver was taken to Ben Taub Hospital where he was treated for minor bumps and bruises.
