What Happened

Texas Department of Public Safety officials are investigating a crash that killed a man at FM 33 in Howard County, TX on November 9th, 2023. Police say the incident happened in rainy weather conditions. Reports indicate a tractor-trailer operated by 51-year-old Fernando Alvarez was westbound on FM 33. Headed eastbound was a second tractor-trailer operated by 49-year-old Ra Nebmare Nebertcher-Bey. Police allege the westbound truck veered from its lane for unclear reasons before side-swiping the eastbound vehicle. From there, sources say Alvarez's truck continued westbound in eastbound lanes before colliding head-on with a vehicle operated by 54-year-old Travis Larson, becoming jack-knifed in the process. The truck was then truck by an approaching Chevrolet Malibu, ejecting Alvarez from the truck and causing fatal injuries. 54-year-old Travis Larson and five passengers were hospitalized with undisclosed injuries. Malibu driver, 21-year-old Bailey Garcia, was hospitalized in stable condition with a passenger. Nebertcher-Bey was allegedly treated and released. Additional information was not immediately available.
