Conroe, TX (June 19, 2019) – A man survived a single-vehicle crash, but died minutes later when struck by a pickup truck near Conroe.
The car accident happened after midnight on I-45 near Highway 242 westbound. A man driving a Toyota T100 pickup truck hit a few barrels causing his truck to flip and slide up the exit ramp.
The driver was climbing out of his vehicle when another driver of a Toyota Tundra truck took the same exit and hit him.
The collision pinned the victim underneath both trucks. Firefighters spent two hours trying to cut the victim out from both vehicles, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
The surviving driver was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital in stable condition. Authorities believe alcohol played a factor in the collision. The driver is expected to face an intoxication manslaughter charge.
