Splendora, TX – One Killed In Rear-End Collision On US-59
Splendora, TX (April 4, 2019) – Splendora Police responded to an accident on Highway 59 in Liberty County on April 4.
According to reports, the Splendora Police department responded to an initial crash on US-59. The crash caused oncoming traffic to slow down in the roadways. Roughly one mile from the scene of this incident, a red pickup truck traveling down the road slowed as the result of the collision.
The driver in a white pickup truck failed to notice the vehicles stopped in the roadway, which resulted in the driver rear-ending the red pickup truck. The driver in the white pickup truck sustained minor injuries in the collision. The driver in the red pickup truck, unfortunately, was killed in the accident. A total of four vehicles were involved in the crash, but no other victims were injured.
