HOUSTON, TX – A driver died in a fiery crash on South Gessner Road this weekend, according to a press release from the Houston Police Department.
The unidentified male victim was driving a white pickup truck near 3200 Gessner Road around 8:15 p.m. on Saturday, April 10. The driver attempted to pass on the left side but there was no lane, only a turnaround.
He then attempted to pull back into the main lanes but lost control of his truck. He struck a nearby curb and drove up onto a median. His car then hit a concrete bridge, which caused the gas tank in his car to rupture and spill gasoline. The victim’s truck rolled over and then caught on fire.
The incident remains under investigation.
