Father finds son’s body 13 hours after car crash in Humble

After a single car accident on FM1960 near Possum Park, the driver of the badly wrecked vehicle was transported via life flight and the scene was cleared by emergency crews. 13 hours later a father went looking for his missing son and made a tragic discovery: his 23-year old son’s body in nearby woods, 172 feet beyond the point of impact of the crash. This was apparently a very severe crash: the vehicle hit a ditch, hit two poles and then became airborne. The roof of the vehicle was ripped off and the driver was ejected into a parking lot. Atasocita Volunteer Fire Department Assistant Chief Mike Mulligan explained that they responded to the crash at 2:30am and there were no witnesses: on their arrival the driver was unconscious and he said there was no indication of a passenger. The driver of the vehicle died in hospital at around 6:30AM, both men were only 23-years old. The cause of the crash is under investigation, and it appears excessive speed or alcohol use may have been a factor.
