A car accident on Highway 290 at Antoine around 3:30 a.m. involved one fatality. Two vehicles were involved, a dark-colored sedan and a mid-size SUV that appears to be a Toyota Forerunner. Channel 13’s report from the scene indicated someone was ejected from one vehicle, though which vehicle wasn’t clear. From the damage to the vehicles it appears the car rear ended the SUV causing the Toyota to spin out, however police are still investigating. All westbound lanes of Highway 290 were closed to traffic as police worked the accident scene.

One driver died and another way injured in a two car accident early this morning. At around 2:00am a Toyota Forerunner SUV was speeding down FM2920 when it ran a red light at Falvel and struck another car. The Forerunner rolled over into a ditch and the driver of the Forerunner died at the scene. The driver of the other vehicle was transported to the hospital in stable condition. Investigators told Channel 2 they will test the deceased driver to determine whether drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash. Without wanting to rush to judgment, when a car crash happens in the early morning hours on the weekend, alcohol is usually to blame. FOX News’ coverage of the accident is here.
