Huffman rollover accident

Shortly after the Needville accident, a man in northeast Harris County was killed after authorities said he lost control of his pickup truck and was ejected from his vehicle.

The crash happened around 1:30 a.m. on FM 2100 near Guy Road in Huffman, authorities said.

Deputies said the 36-year-old man was in a white Chevy pickup headed southbound on 2100 when he lost control of the vehicle and left the roadway.

The vehicle rotated sideways, hit a ditch and the fence of a nearby business before the truck flipped, ejecting the driver from the truck, deputies said.

Authorities said the victim was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the incident. There was light drizzle and the road was likely slick.

Deputies said they will be taking those factors and the possibility of impairment into account as they work to investigate the cause of the crash.
