Investigators found two people dead inside a car, less than a mile away from the home, near New Waverly.
Emergency responders say around 7 a.m. this morning, they got a report of a single vehicle crash on Mt. Zion Road and North Clark, which is southeast of New Waverly.
When EMS and the North Montgomery County Fire Department arrived on the scene they found a Pontiac Grand Am upside down against a tree. Medics said both the driver and the passenger were found dead inside.
The driver was identified as 38-year-old Jerry Hamm of New Waverly. The passenger was 23-year-old James Sumrall.
Investigators say Hamm was driving east on Mt. Zion and failed to follow the curve. Hamm over corrected the vehicle, slid sideways down North Clark Road almost 250 feet before hitting several trees. The vehicle then rolled upside down against a large tree which almost split the vehicle in two.
An autopsy is being conducted at the Montgomery County Forensic Center.
