It is with great sadness that we report two adults were found dead inside a submerged car in a Houston ditch. The vehicle was found on the 8300 block of Wilcrest, near Beechnut Street.
According to Lt. Michael Hircoch with HPD, they received information from a caller that they heard a loud bang early Monday morning around 3 a.m.
When authorities arrived later in the afternoon, they found a sedan submerged in the water.
The exact cause of the accident is still under investigation, but it is believed that heavy rains in the area may have played a role. This is a tragic story and our hearts go out to the family during this difficult time.
