Houston, TX (September 18, 2021) – A major truck accident occurred on a roadway in Houston on Saturday morning, September 18, prompting a response from local emergency crews.
Initial reports stated that the driver of an 18-wheeler sustained serious injuries after his truck collided with another tractor-trailer. The incident happened around 4:30 a.m. at 16699 East Freeway in Channelview.
EMS units transported the man to an area medical center for treatment of moderate injuries. They also pronounced another victim dead at the scene, though it’s unclear if the driver of the other truck is the victim who died.
HPD officers continue to investigate and have not provided further details at this time.
Our deepest condolences go out to the family of the deceased victim. Our thoughts are with everyone else involved in hopes of a full recovery.
