A Spring car crash early Saturday morning sent two people flying from their vehicle, according to authorities. Then, as officers investigated, two alleged drunken drivers attempted to plow through the scene.
Shortly before 2 a.m., Harris County Precinct 4 deputies and the Spring Fire Department responded to reports of a crash near Treaschwig and Aldine Westfield roads, said Onscene.TV. They found a car off the side of the road, with both passengers, a woman and man, ejected from the vehicle.

The woman, who was in her 20s, was transported by helicopter to a downtown hospital, and the man was taken to a nearby trauma center by hospital. Both are expected to survive their injuries.
While the investigators were interviewing witnesses — deputies believe speed was a factor in the crash — another car drove through the scene, narrowly missing the witnesses and crashing into a nearby pole at a low speed.
Then a second car, which had an unrestrained toddler in the backseat, drove into the crash scene.
Both drivers had open containers in their cars, and deputies arrested both with driving while intoxicated.
Harris County Precinct 4 said it would not be able to share information on the incident until Monday.
