Last night, January 13th, 2021, at about 9:54 pm, I90 eastbound (MP 38) was closed due to a fatality collision.
A silver Dodge pickup being driven by a 26-year-old from New Braunfels, TX, was going westbound in the eastbound lanes of I-90 when it struck a car traveling eastbound.
A second vehicle swerved in an attempt to avoid the accident and was struck by the wrong-way driver in its second trailer.
The wrong-way driver then swerved back into his original lane of travel and hit a third vehicle head-on.
All drivers were wearing seatbelts, but the wrong-way driver was deceased at the scene. The 59-year-old driver of the third vehicle was transported to Overlake Hospital.
After an investigation, the eastbound lanes of the freeway were reopened at 4:30 am on January 14th. It is unknown at this point if drugs and alcohol were involved.
