MONT BELVIEU, TX (KTRK) — A single car crash late last night in Mont Belvieu ended with one member of a family dead and five others, including three children, in the hospital.
Police say the family was in a Ford Expedition and headed northbound on Highway 146 near FM 1942 when the driver suddenly lost control. The SUV ran off the road, hit a culvert, hit a pole and then flipped several times.
“It was just a one-vehicle, but we’re not exactly sure what the cause was, until we can complete our accident investigation,” said Virgil Blasdel with the Mont Belvieu Police Department.
One adult died at the scene. Several family members, including three children, were taken by Life Flight to the Texas Medical Center. Their conditions are unknown at this time.
