HARRIS COUNTY, Texas — Two people died Sunday night and two others were hospitalized after a crash on a northwest Harris County street involving a tow truck.

According to Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez, the tow truck and a sedan collided in the 10800 block of N. Gessner Road near the Willowbreak area. This happened shortly after 9 p.m.
