NW Harris County crash

A driver was going well above100 mph when he crashed a Chevrolet Camaro in a deadly incident at an underground car meet late Sunday, the Harris County Sheriff’s Office said.

The driver is now dealing with criminal charges for the crash, which a witness caught on video.

Deputies said hundreds were standing along sidewalks on the frontage road as others showed off their automobiles. A witness’s cell phone recorded a yellow Camaro speed by and then crash into another driver, who was in a Chevrolet Malibu.

The impact sent the Malibu into the crowd of onlookers.

One man was killed and two others, thought to be teenage boys, were seriously injured and had to be airlifted to the hospital. One person was admitted to the hospital by ambulance, and at least five others were treated for various injuries at the scene.

One of the injured teens who was airlifted later died, Sheriff Ed Gonzalez confirmed.

Deputies identified the driver of the Camaro as Andrew Mock, 22. He allegedly informed the crowd moments before that he was going to do a “fly by”.

The impact was so serious that Mock’s Camaro briefly went airborne, witnesses said.

As of early Monday morning, Mock was in custody and facing one count of manslaughter and two counts of assault by reckless driving. Those charges will likely be upgraded following the confirmation of the second death was confirmed.
