A Houston car accident lead to fatal injuries for an unidentified 61-year-old driver. The car collision was reported to have occurred between two vehicles on U.S. 59 around 3 p.m. on March 31. The Southwest Freeway by Chimney Rock was closed for more than eight hours following the serious crash. The fatal accident remains under investigation by Texas authorities, according to a report issued in April.
The crash took place in Southwest Houston and involved a Jeep Cherokee and a 18-wheeler truck. Authorities claim that the Jeep struck the U.S Postal Service truck, causing both vehicles to crash into a concrete wall. Both vehicles caught fire and part of the truck detached from the vehicle and struck a pole in the collision. The Jeep was reported to be trapped between the wall and the truck before being igniting from the damage.
