HUFFMAN, TX (KTRK) -- Two people were killed after a 3-vehicle accident in northeast Harris County Saturday evening.

Anderson's family says she was a spontaneous, caring sister, aunt, granddaughter, niece and dear friend. The 25-year-old had moved here from Utah with her family.

Last night relatives say she was driving her gray Mazda in the 11600 block FM 1960 in Huffman with her good friend, husband and their two children to attend a Christmas party when a crash took two lives and has heartbroken so many more.

Police say the driver of a white Yukon veered out of his lane striking Courtney's car, she was pushed into oncoming traffic and the driver of a red Dodge struck her. The driver of the Dodge was taken to the hospital. Courtney died along with her friend's 7-year-old son. Now her good friend, husband and daughter are all in the hospital.

Relatives have launched a fundraising page to take Courtney back to Utah and say, "We already miss you my sweet girl and wish that it wasn't your time to get your angel wings."

The two were pronounced dead at the hospital.

The driver of the white SUV, who appeared to have started the chain reaction, appeared to be not injured.
