Semi runs red light on FM 359, killing truck driver at intersection

FULSHEAR, TX- A semitruck driver crushed a truck and its driver when the semi ran a red light at a Fulshear intersection on Feb. 7th, KTRK reports.

At 5:20a.m. on Tuesday morning, the semitruck driver drove past a red light while driving eat on FM 1093. He crashed into a northbound truck that was on FM 359.

The driver of this passed away from the impact. The at-fault driver had some injuries. However, the injuries were not serious.

Besides the loss of life in this accident, there was a great deal of property damage as well.

Electricity and traffic signals were unable to function for some time on Tuesday as a few power lines and a transformer were damaged in the crash.

The CenterPoint Energy company was working on these outages for most of the day. At 2p.m., work was anticipated to be completed in six hours. They hoped to have power running by 5p.m., and they also hoped to have the traffic signals up, but not until 8p.m.

Three options for detours were presented to other drivers: TX Heritage Parkway to I-10, Highway 36, or Fry Road.
