Fatal crash shuts down U.S. 59 in Beasley
Portions of U.S. 59 in Fort Bend County were shut down after a fatal traffic crash early Friday morning.
The wreck occurred at about 3:15 a.m. on southbound U.S. 59 near Isleib in the Beasley area, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.
Troopers said they did not have details about the crash. However, other media reported a motorist driving the wrong one slammed into another vehicle. The wrong-way driver died.
No other information was immediately available about other possible injuries.
The wreck led to a hazmat spill and forced officials to block all southbound lanes while crews cleared the scene.
