Box truck driver in critical condition after striking tow truck parked along I-69 (TX)


Recommended Posts






A man is in critical condition after the truck he was driving veered off the road on Interstate 69 Friday morning

and hit a wrecker on the side of the highway.


A 30-year-old man is in critical condition after he drifted off Interstate 69 in the box truck he was driving and struck a tow truck parked on the side of the road.


William Alexander Benavides remained at Kingwood Hospital Friday afternoon.


Department of Public Safety Sgt. Erik Burse said Benavides was north on Interstate 69 when he stuck the back of a Saddle Creek Towing and Recovery tow truck.


Once on scene, firefighters with the Porter Fire Department worked 30 minutes to free Benavides from the heavily damaged box truck.


The incident is still under investigation.





On FB Brenda Richardson stated:

"Just before 2 am a Saddle Creek Towing Company truck was stopped on the inside shoulder of I-69 between Northpark and FM 1314 after just clearing a scene with his overhead lights on. An auto parts box truck for unknown reason ran off the inside lane onto the shoulder and struck the wrecker. The wrecker driver who was in the driver’s seat was transported to Kingwood Hospital in stable condition. The box truck driver was entrapped. Porter Fire Department worked close to 30 minutes to free him. He was transported to Kingwood Hospital by MCHD in critical condition. DPS is investigating the crash."

That's a horrendous crash there, is there any update on the tow truck drivers condition? Thought be with all involved, this seems to be happening more instead of less.
