PA man dies in Beaumont crash

BEAUMONT — A Port Arthur man is dead following a two vehicle crash in Beaumont Friday night.

Beaumont Police received a call of the crash at about 11 p.m. Sept. 18 at the intersection of Major Drive and Texas 105 in Beaumont’s west end.

As officers arrived, they observed two damaged, white colored Ford F-150 trucks resting against the traffic light pole in the intersection, according to a press release from BPD.

A person who witnessed the crash told officers the driver of the first white F-150 was heading eastbound on Texas 105 and failed to stop at the red light at Texas 105 and Tram Road and also failed to stop at the red light at Texas 105 and Major Drive.

The driver of the second truck was heading southbound on Major Drive approaching Texas 105.  The driver of the second truck had a green light, and proceeded to turn east onto 105, just as the driver of the first F-150 drove through the red light at the same intersection.  Because the driver of the first F-150 failed to stop at the red light, both trucks collided with each other.

As a result of the collision, the driver that failed to stop at the red light sustained injuries that they were not able to overcome.  The driver of the second truck also sustained injuries, but after being transported to a local hospital, that driver is expected to live. Out of respect for the family, the name of the deceased driver will not be released until the family is notified of the driver’s passing.
