A woman was killed and three other people were injured in a single-vehicle crash early Friday morning in Richmond, near Sugar Land.
Fort Bend County Sheriff’s deputies were called to the scene just before 4 a.m. at the 5000 block of Ransom Road, near River Pointe Church.
The driver was speeding in a white Nissan sedan when she lost control and hit a guardrail before slamming into a concrete barrier, deputies said.
The driver was pronounced dead at the scene, while two passengers were transported to nearby Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital in serious condition, authorities said. A third victim was flown to the Texas Medical Center via LifeFlight.
The names and ages of the victims have not been released, but deputies said that there were no children in the car.
The crash caused a part of Ransom Road to be closed for a few hours, reopening at 7:30 a.m.
