Three Rivers, TX – Joel Evans Howell Killed In Collision On I-37
Three Rivers, TX (April 12, 2019) – Shortly before 1 a.m. on April 10, the Texas Department of Public Safety responded to the scene of a fatal collision.
The incident occurred on Interstate 37 just three miles north of Three Rivers. According to police, a pickup truck was pulled over on the right side of the roadway for unknown reasons. The driver of the pickup truck suddenly put his vehicle in reverse and accelerated onto the highway. In doing so, a vehicle, driven by 38-year-old Joel Evans Howell, that was traveling on the I-37 slammed into the back of the pickup truck.
The crash was so violent that Howell sustained catastrophic injuries and passed away as a result of his injuries at the scene. The driver of the pickup truck was transported to Christus Spohn Hospital in Beeville and was later arrested.
The crash remains under investigation at this time.
We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the loved ones of Joel Howell at this time. Our thoughts are with them during this terrible time. We hope the other driver will be able to recover completely from his injuriess also.
