HOUSTON — It’s possible speeding cost a driver his life Tuesday night after police said the victim lost control of his vehicle in the Westchase District, the Houston Police Department.

The driver and a passenger — both men — were headed eastbound on Richmond Avenue  at a high rate of speed around 7 p.m. Investigators said the vehicle either went over a hump in the intersection or struck the curb, causing the vehicle to slide sideways and slam into a light pole. The pole was knocked down, and the upside down vehicle continued to roll before crashing through a yard and stopping in front of a house near S. Gessner Road.

Police said the driver was ejected from the car during the accident.

The men were taken to the hospital, where the driver later passed away. The passenger is in stable condition, police said.
