Newton County, TX (July 14, 2019) On the morning of July 13th, a fatal head-on accident happened on Highway 87, close to the Bleakwood community. At around 2:45 a.m., a 2012 Chevrolet pickup truck was traveling north on the highway when it somehow crossed the center line and collided head-on with a 1996 Chevrolet sedan. Upon impact, the sedan caught on fire and the driver inside was unable to leave the vehicle in time.
When the paramedics, police, and firefighters arrived, they found the driver inside of the sedan dead at the scene. The driver of the pickup truck was seriously injured and rushed to Christus St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Beaumont. He has been identified as 24-year-old Brycton Hughey.
Authorities are still investigating to collect more data regarding what led up to the fatal crash.
We send our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased driver and we wish Brycton Hughey a complete recovery.
Head-On Collisions in Texas
Head-on collisions are the most dangerous kind of collisions to be involved in because everyone involved is likely to sustain very serious injuries that could be fatal. Because two vehicles are colliding head-on at high speeds, the impact is twice more intense than any other kind of accident. When drivers end up in opposite lanes due to negligent driving, head-on collisions are always the result.
