Two Children Killed in Grimes County Trucking Accident


Two children are dead and a third has been hospitalized as a result of an 18-wheeler accident on Highway 90 in Grimes County.

Details of the Fatal Trucking Accident

According to KBTX, the crash occurred just before 7 am Wednesday, about mile south of Bedias.

A preliminary investigation suggests Montiqua Mosley was attempting to make a turn from Highway 90 onto a private driver when her 2007 Mazda sedan was struck by an 18-wheeler. The crash resulted in the deaths of a 5-year-old and a 2-year-old. Mosley was hospitalized in Bryan and a 6-year-old was transported by helicopter to McLane Scott & White Hospital in Temple.

First responders were forced to shut down both lanes of the highway while the accident was investigated and the scene was cleared of debris. The cause of the collision is still under investigation.
