Five injured in head-on collision in NW Houston

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A head-on crash early Tuesday morning in northwest Houston sent five people to the hospital.

It happened about 12:30am at the intersection of West Montgomery and Victory.

Investigators say the driver of a car was headed south on West Montgomery when he attempted to make a left turn. Police say he collided with a car heading northbound. A total of five people were injured, including a 13-year-old boy.

The crash made such a loud sound that woke up neighbors who were sound asleep. That included a local pastor Steven Williams. Once outside, Williams and some other neighbors realized there was a crash and there were victims. They rushed over to try and help.

"I went to the car where the young lady was, her head was gashed pretty bad," said Williams. "We thought the car was going to catch on fire, we pulled one of the ladies out because we thought the car was going to catch on fire."

Police say all five victims were transported to nearby hospitals. They all had non-life-threatening injuries.

Investigators do believe that alcohol may have played a role.
