Police are trying to determine whether slick roads caused a deadly accident in west Houston this morning.

It happened around 2am on Briar Forest near Mossy Stone Drive.

According to authorities, the car was speeding on Briar Forest when the driver lost control and crashed into a grove of pine trees.

Two men inside the car died at the scene. Investigators say there is no evidence alcohol was involved.

Police say the area has automatic sprinklers that covered the road in water.
