Major wreck hits near Middle School

CROSBY – Two unrelated accidents occurred back to back beginning at about 6:48 a.m. and another at about 8:00 a.m. in the 14,700 block of Main Street, about one block north of the Crosby Middle School on Tuesday, January 29.

The first was a roll-over accident that required Life Flight helicopter when a black sedan was involved in a collision with a black minivan. The sedan landed upside down on the side of the road.

The second accident, at the same location just after the first had been cleared by First Responders, also had one adult taken to the hospital by HCESD#5, the ambulance service for Crosby.

Crosby ISD had no word of anyone associated with the school being involved with either crash.

Harris County Sheriff’s Traffic Investigators were still reviewing the case at press time and their determination of what exactly happened has not been concluded.

Crosby Middle School and Crosby High School are near the intersection of Krenek Road and along the path of both local traffic and traffic in route to major destinations including Houston, Baytown and Mont Belvieu where millions of individuals work. Those that remember the intersection of US 90 near Krenek and Runneburg Roads before the overpasses were installed will remember the touching between local traffic and heavy big city traffic required extra vigilance for driver’s safety, the presence of schools makes it more imperative to be extra safe.
