Accident snarls traffic south of Lumberton on Highway 69

A multi-vehicle wreck has brought rush hour traffic to a crawl along Eastex Freeway.

The accident happened just after 8:30 in the southbound lanes of U.S. 69 at Tram Road. Beaumont emergency dispatch tells 12News the accident involves at least four vehicles with one overturning.

According to an officer on the scene, a Ford Fusion was exiting US 69 at Tram Rd when the driver lost control hitting a Toyota Camry. The impact caused the Camry to flip.  The Fusion continued off the freeway down the embankment onto a service road where it ran into a ditch. Two pick up trucks traveling along the service road collided with each other while trying to avoid being hit by the Fusion. The driver of the Camry was transported to a local hospital while the driver of the Fusion was treated on scene. No word on charges yet.
