BEAUMONT, Texas (AP) — Authorities say two men were killed after part of a crane fell on their pickup truck as it traveled on Interstate 10 in Southeast Texas.
Texas Department of Public Safety Sgt. Stephanie Davis says the truck was traveling westbound on I-10 just southwest of Beaumont when the crane experienced “some type of malfunction” and collapsed on the vehicle around 4:30 p.m. Thursday.
The crane was part of equipment being used by crews working on a construction project on I-10.
Officials have identified the two who died as 37-year-old Sarfaraz Karowadia, who was the driver, and 42-year-old Altaf Kasowadia.
Both were from the Houston suburb of Friendswood.
