PN man, 63, killed in morning crash on Spur 136

On Wednesday December 2nd, 2015 at approximately 7:51am officers were dispatched to a major traffic accident in the 2700 block of Spur 136 in Port Neches. Upon officers arrival it was determined that a 2015 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck was eastbound on Spur 136 and had crossed the center lane and struck a 2006 Ford Tow Truck that was travelling westbound on Spur 136. Port Neches Fire Dept. had to use the “jaws of life” to extricate the driver of The Toyota P.U. He was transported to Christus St. Elizabeth hospital in Beaumont for treatment. The driver of the tow truck was not injured. Witnesses indicated that the Toyota PU was being driven erratically prior to the collision and investigators believe that the driver may have suffered from a medical condition that could have contributed to the accident. Officers were later notified by officials at Christus St. Elizabeth hospital that the driver of the Toyota, 63 year old David Foster Henry of Port Neches, had died at 10:48am. The crash remains under investigation and no charges have been filed.
