US 59 CRASH TURNS FATAL

On Sunday, May 10th, 2015 at 9:45am the Cleveland Police Department was alerted to a three vehicle accident located on US 59 Southbound at the San Jacinto River Bridge.

Officer Geoffrey Silva and Officer Erica Fleming responded to the accident scene to find a 2004 Chevy Trailblazer SUV teetering on the bridge guardrail. Officers also found occupants trapped in a 2003 Ford F-150 which sustained severe damage from the accident. The Cleveland Fire Department arrived on scene to assist with the rescue.

The preliminary accident investigation indicates that a 2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer was traveling Southbound on US 59 and was being followed by family members traveling in a 2003 Ford F-150 Truck. The Trailblazer SUV reportedly had mechanical problems and was stalled on US 59 Southbound, the F-150 Truck was behind the Trailblazer SUV.

A 2005 Freightliner Tractor Trailer (owned by Drive Logistics) was also traveling southbound and struck the 2003 F-150 Truck which in turn struck the 2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer SUV.

The Ford F-150 Truck sustained severe damage upon being struck by the Tractor Trailer, the Chevrolet Trailblazer SUV sustained moderate damage upon being pushed onto the guardrail by the Ford F-150 Truck.

Four occupants who were in the Chevy Trailblazer SUV escaped safely without sustaining major injuries. Two occupants were trapped inside the Ford F-150 truck, as the third occupant was able to exit the vehicle with minor injuries. The Jaws of Life had to be implemented to remove the two occupants who were trapped in the truck. Those two occupants were flown to Hermann Memorial and Conroe Regional Medical Center via Air Ambulance in critical condition.

It was later learned that a male passenger traveling in the Ford F-150 Truck succumbed to his injuries, the family has been notified, the deceased passenger is identified as Abel Zamora (mid-forties) of Dallas, Texas.

A Good Samaritan arrived to assist with the rescue, but injured their ankle upon slipping on diesel that had been spilled from the collision.

Due to the severity of this accident, Sergeant Kevin Potter and Sergeant David Edwards were called to the scene to assist with the accident investigation. An ongoing accident investigation will be conducted by the Cleveland Police Department.

Several neighboring Law Enforcement / First Responder Agencies assisted by responding to the accident scene.
