DOUBLE FATAL CRASH ON US 59

A little after 3pm a sewer worker was working on the southbound feeder of US 59 near FM 1314 when a vehicle disregarded the traffic cones and slammed into the rear of the pump truck. The impact pinned the construction worker between the pump truck and the striking vehicle. The driver of the vehicle also died on the scene. US 59 southbound feeder remains closed south of FM 1314 and will for several hours.  Alternate routes are use Sorters Road as FM 1314 is backed up to Sorters Road from the freeway and Loop 494 is backed up from Kingwood.
