Police are investigating a deadly two-vehicle crash that killed two people Sunday on Houston's south side.

It happened around 3:15pm on Almeda Genoa near Lockcrest.

The driver of a pickup was traveling west on Almeda Genoa when he reportedly lost control and struck another vehicle. The car went into a ditch and the pickup flipped on its side in the middle of the road.

Two males were in the pickup. Both were pronounced dead at the scene, officials said.

A woman driving the second car had to be rescued from her vehicle.

"She was talking and everything, and holding hands and everything," witness James Barclay said. "She looked like she was going to make it."

The woman was transported to an area hospital with minor injuries.

Investigators tell us alcohol was not a factor in the crash. The cause remains under investigation.
