Sugar Land, Texas (April 30, 2023) – A crash involving two pickup trucks resulted in the deaths of two people on US-59 Sunday morning in Sugar Land.
Police say a Toyota pickup was traveling in the wrong direction when it crashed into a Chevy pickup at approximately 4 a.m. Both individuals in the Toyota were killed in the collision.

Two children, reported to be between the ages of 12 to 15, were taken to the hospital along with an adult man. All three are expected to survive.
Wrong-way collisions are the reason many people suffer injuries or end up killed. According to the FHWA, in the United States, WWD crashes result in 300 to 400 people killed each year on average, representing approximately 1 percent of the total number of traffic-related fatalities that occur annually. Although this is a small percentage, these crashes have the deadliest fatalities since they usually occur at high speeds.
