A woman, a 7-month-old and a 5-year-old were killed in a fiery, multi-vehicle car crash in Harris County on Sunday night.

Harris County Precinct 4 Constable Mark Herman said the children and their mother died at the scene of the suspected alcohol-related wreck at FM 2920 and Gosling Road, near Spring.

A third child in the vehicle, a 2-year-old boy, was airlifted to a hospital and is on life support, Herman said in a news conference on Monday.

Their names have not been released by authorities.

He said the family was traveling westbound on FM 2920 when their vehicle was struck at a high rate of speed by a “suspected impaired driver”

The family’s car crashed into other vehicles and erupted in flames, Herman said. A total of seven vehicles were involved in the accident.

The suspect driver was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive, he said. He is facing multiple counts of intoxication manslaughter.

Herman did not release the suspect’s name and did not disclose if the man previously faced driving while intoxicated-related charges.

“This is a tragedy,” he said. “It is a situation of, again, a possible suspected impaired driver who basically snuffs a family out of existence.”

KPRC, KSAT’s sister station in Houston, reported a person from another vehicle was transported to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
