Monday at approximately 7:45p.m., the Texas Department of Public Safety Troopers responded to an auto-pedestrian crash on Interstate 10 in Orange County. The crash occurred in the eastbound traffic lanes of the Interstate, just west of the Texas-Louisiana state line.
Preliminary reports indicate that a female subject was struck initially by a 2004 Chevrolet pickup truck. Following the initial collision, it appears the deceased victim was struck by several other vehicles.
The driver of the Chevrolet did stop and cooperated with the investigation. All eastbound traffic lanes of Interstate 10, near the Travel Information Center were closed for most of the night.
