HOUSTON, TX – Two people were killed early on Monday morning, when a car crashed into a motel lobby and then caught fire.
A driver lost control of their vehicle and crashed through the front wall of the Super 8 motel on North Freeway near Richey Road. The accident occurred early in the morning on May 25.
ABC 13 reporter Charly Edsitty explained that the vehicle hit a power pole on the North Freeway access road, near the motel’s entrance. The car then dragged the pole 100 feet before crashing through the motel’s wall.
The car caused significant damage to the motel, creating a large hole near the front lobby.
The vehicle caught fire after the impact, but the building’s sprinkler system controlled the flames and prevented the fire from spreading.
The Houston medical examiner removed two people from the building, who were killed during the accident. They believe that these people were the driver and passenger in the vehicle.
The motel’s manager reports that he and his family of six were sleeping in the motel when the accident occurred. Fortunately, the manager’s family, the motel staff, and all the residents were uninjured in the accident.
