GALVESTON COUNTY, Texas (KTRK) — The man who was thrown into the water during a crash on the Galveston Causeway Bridge on Sunday night has been identified as a Crosby firefighter.
According to Texas Equusearch, 20-year-old Kent Zavala remained missing Monday afternoon after he was ejected out of his vehicle during a major three-vehicle crash around 8:15 p.m. on Sunday.
The Coast Guard said a Jeep with three men and a dog inside crashed into a guardrail on the outbound lane of the causeway near the Tiki Island exit.
Two of the men were taken to UTMB with critical injuries. The Coast Guard said a dog and Zavala were ejected through the soft top of the Jeep and into the water.
