One person is dead and two others were injured following a wrong way car crash in Lake Jackson. The accident occurred early this morning, at about 1:35 a.m., on Highway 332 near Elm Street.
The DPS reported that at the time of the crash, a Lake Jackson deputy working for the Brazoria County Sheriff’s Department was driving northbound on SH-332, while a driver manning a Ford was going the wrong way. The deputy attempted to avoid the wrong way driver, but was unable to do so, and they crashed head-on.
The driver of the Ford was Life Flighted to a nearby hospital, where they remain in critical condition. Their passenger, a male, succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. The deputy was also injured. A third vehicle struck the patrol unit after the initial collision.
