Edson Alanis Manzano fatally struck by 18 wheeler on Highway 146, Bacliff, TX

20-year old landscape worker Edson Alanis Manzano was fatally struck by an out-of-control 18-wheeler as he worked alongside Highway 146 in Bacliff, Texas. The accident happened Monday June 30th as Edson was trimming back weeds at Highway 146 and FM 646. The big rig, pulling a tanker trailer, veered off the roadway on its way from La Porte to Texas City, striking Edson. Witness Jacob Cortez, who saw the accident, said he thought perhaps the driver had fallen asleep, and said that when the driver exited the truck after the accident the driver looked stunned. Edson was working for a company called BIO Landscape and performing a contract for the Texas Department of Transportation.

The driver, 55-year old Glendall Bickwenhert from Kentucky, was cooperating with the police investigation. The 18-wheeler is owned by Indiana-based Time Dedicated DC Carriers, whose U.S. Dept of Transportation profile states the company operates 45 trucks.

Boat tire crashes through woman’s windshield on Highway 146

May 2012
A woman driving in Baytown was injured Memorial Day Monday when a tire and wheel came loose from a boat trailer and bounced across the Highway 146 median into oncoming traffic. Channel 11’s story says the woman in the red-colored Nissan sedan was not seriously injured but was taken to hospital because she was so shaken by the accident. It appears much of the damage was caused to the passenger side, where nobody was sitting.
