A mother is dead and four children are recovering after a two-vehicle crash in north Harris County.
The crash was reported shortly before 9:30 p.m. Thursday night at the intersection of TC Jester Boulevard and Swords Creek Road.
Investigators said 30-year-old Angelina Billups was driving a Chevy Traverse with four children as passengers, when police suspect she ran a stop sign at the intersection and slammed into a Cadillac sedan.
Billups was killed.
One of the children -- a 9-year-old girl who was in the front passenger seat -- was wearing a seat belt and suffered minor injuries. Three of the children, ages 6, 6 and 7, who investigators said were unrestrained in the back seat, were flown to a hospital for treatment of critical injuries.
