Fatal Brownsville 18-Wheeler Crash Tragically Kills San Benito Man, Leaves 4 Injured


A Texas motorist died tragically yesterday morning, following a violent 18-wheeler crash in Brownsville that sent all four of his passengers to the hospital.

18-Wheeler Was Reversing onto Grassy Area of the Highway

The June 7th accident occurred around 4:18 a.m., as the semi-truck was reversing onto a grassy portion of State Highway 4 at Lyndon B. Johnson Boulevard. According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, a GMC Sierra driven by a 36-year-old San Benito man was heading west on Highway 4 and collided with the rear of the trailer.

Sadly, the driver of the Sierra was pronounced dead at the scene.
