After landing on Houston-Hobby (HOU) runway 31L, the aircrew of N100VV, a Cessna 550, requested clearance to turn off to the right at midfield onto runway 22. The request was approved and the aircrew was instructed to use caution for a Piper Cherokee proceeding from the opposite direction. The pilot of N100VV stated that after he turned right onto runway 4/22 and was clear of the Cherokee, he attempted to contact the tower to advise of his intentions. However, the frequency was too busy, so he switched to the ground frequency and transmitted that he was "off 31L, going to Atlantic." This transmission ended just as N100VV was entering the intersection of runways 22 and 31R. Just prior to that, Cessna 550 N222WL had been cleared for takeoff on runway 31R and had begun its takeoff roll. N222WL was at approx. 70 kts when its aircrew saw N100VV starting to cross the active runway. The pilot of N222WL attempted to takeoff and avoid a collision, but was unable to clear the other Cessna. N222WL crashed and slid to a stop approx. 400 ft beyond the impact point, then burned.

Probable Cause:

Visual lookout .. inadequate .. pilot of other aircraft
Procedures/directives .. not followed .. pilot of other aircraft

Light condition .. dusk
Diverted attention .. pilot of other aircraft
Object .. aircraft moving on ground
