Previous Release

On Friday, December 4, 2020, at 5:03 a.m., Beaumont Police responded to the 2000 block of IH-10 (Southbound) in reference to a single vehicle accident. Officers arrived and found the driver of a 2005 Dodge Pickup Truck deceased on scene.

The preliminary investigation has revealed that the driver was traveling southbound on IH-10 when the vehicle left the roadway, striking the guardrail and causing the vehicle to overturn. The investigation continues and Judge Collins has ordered an autopsy.

The driver has been identified, but we are still awaiting proper notifications and will release the name when that time comes.
