Head-On Collision & 18-Wheeler Fires Kill 3 in Deadly Fort Bend County Accident

Two 18-Wheelers, a Box Truck & a Passenger Vehicle Were Involved in a Chain-Reaction Crash That Left Few Survivors

A truck driver and two people in a passenger vehicle were killed in a horrific truck accident in Beasley, Texas, on Monday, November 8, 2021. The crash occurred around noon at Vincik Ehlert Road and FM 360. It reportedly started when a car ran a stop sign at FM 360. 

After that:

  • The car entered the intersection unexpectedly (after failing to stop at a stop sign).
  • The car collided with an 18-wheeler.
  • The car was then hit by a box truck.
  • The 18-wheeler that hit the car drifted into oncoming traffic.
  • Two 18-wheelers collided head on.
  • Both trucks erupted into flames.

The driver and passenger in the car were two of the victims killed in this accident. The third victim was one of the truck drivers.

Here are more details about how this wreck happened.

Head-On Collision Causes Multiple Vehicle Fires

Authorities report that, after the car ran the stop sign and hit an 18-wheeler, that truck drifted into oncoming traffic. That’s when it slammed into another 18-wheeler in a head-on collision. At that point, both 18-wheelers burst into flames.

The trucker in the semi that had hit the car was able to escape, and his semi was completely burned in the fire. Though injured, he was reportedly conscious when emergency responders took him to Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital.

The driver of the other 18-wheeler suffered fatal injuries in this crash.

Authorities announced the crash a couple of hours after it happened, noting that the roads would be closed as the investigation continued and the wreckage was cleared.

Now, they are urging anyone with information about the crash to come forward and share it.
