Two children dead in Crosby car accident on Beaumont Highway

A two vehicle collision along the Beaumont Highway near the San Jacinto River killed two children last night. The victims are two boys ages 6 and 11; there were four occupants in one of the vehicle, including the two boys. The other occupants were taken by helicopter to Memorial Hermann Medical Center. Police are investigating the case of the accident according to Channel 2, but KHOU’s report on the accident states the driver of a car is at fault for leaving his lane and striking the oncoming SUV head-on.

Update: the young boys who died in the accident have been identified as Brian Figley (11) and Andrew Figley (6). Their mother Laura Figley remains hospitalized with broken arms and a broken leg. KHOU’s story explains how the boys’ father Raymond received a call that his ex wife and sons had been involved in a serious accident, and how when he asked deputies where his sons were they wouldn’t tell him. He learned the worst when he rushed to the accident scene. KHOU’s story also sheds some more light on the cause of the accident, saying 19-year old driver Lyle Buckner was attempting to pass another vehicle in a careless manner when the tragedy happened.
