Four people were killed and three more injured on Saturday following a head-on collision on East Nasa Parkway at Lakeview in Pasadena, Texas.

Details of the Fatal Pasadena Crash

According to KHOU, a black Mazda Miata was traveling along E. Nasa Parkway around 1:30 a.m when it apparently went too fast around a curve, lost control and collided head-on with a taxi minivan.

Two occupants of the Miata died along with two passengers in the taxi minivan. The taxi driver and a front-seat passenger were both airlifted to an area hospital with critical injuries.

Authorities are still investigating the accident, but they do believe that alcohol was a factor.

The identities of those involved in the accident have not yet been released, but authorities did state that the two people in their Miata were in their late 20s and visiting the Houston area from North Texas.

The victims in the minivan were a family visiting from Dallas – they were scheduled to leave on a cruise out of Galveston that morning.
