Call it double trouble.

Two brothers driving separate vehicles, were both charged with driving while intoxicated in the weekend after two deputies were injured in a crash on a freeway Houston.

The Harris County District 8 Constable’s Office said in a Facebook post that the officers were initially investigating a “major accident”, in which a 19-year-old woman was killed late Saturday on the Sam Houston Parkway.

As the officers were directing the traffic, the two vehicles, a pick-up truck driven by a 37-year-old James Bramlet and a car driven by his twin brother, Joseph Bramlet, were involved in a separate crash that caused the truck to slam into a K-9 patrol vehicle, according to the police.

The police said that the department’s “thoughts and prayers” are with those affected by the two crashes, “especially the family of the young woman who died.”
