HOUSTON — The investigation into a fiery crash that killed three people, including an infant, in northwest Harris County continued Thursday.
Deputy constables with Harris County Precinct 4 said the crash happened Wednesday on Antoine at Beltway 8-North. Witnesses said an SUV ran a red light and collided with two other vehicles.
One of the vehicles that was struck was a van with four family members inside.
Family members Thursday identified the victims killed as grandmother Piedad Soriano, infant grandson Ricardo Jr. Escobar and daughter Diana Escobar.
The family said an 11-year-old who was thrown from the van had a concussion and some bumps and bruises, reported Brett Buffington.
There were no serious injuries reported in the other vehicle that was struck.
Deputies later identified the at-fault driver as Gregory Smith, 30. He has a lengthy arrest record and is now facing three counts of intoxication manslaughter and two counts of intoxicated assault for Thursday's crash, according to Harris County Pct. 4.
At a press conference late Wednesday, deputies said investigators would return to the site to take measurements and look for surveillance video in the area that shows the moments leading up to the wreck.
