About the Corpus Christi Cement Truck Accident

Authorities told reporters the accident happened at approximately 11 a.m. on Tuesday afternoon along South Padre Island Drive at Everhart Road. A cement truck was headed east on SPID when it experienced a tire blowout. The truck proceeded to crash through two concrete barriers and collided with three vehicles in westbound lanes.

A total of five people were hospitalized, including two people who sustained what was described as critical injuries from the accident. Emergency workers had to use the Jaws of Life to extricate people from two of the vehicles. In addition to the five people taken by ambulance to area hospitals, two people were treated at the scene for minor injuries.

Sections of SPID were closed until about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday afternoon as workers cleaned up concrete from the highway and repaired the median barriers.
