Corpus Christi–One person is dead following a major accident Saturday night in Corpus Christi. The accident occurred around 8:30 p.m. along Texas 358 between Everhart and Weber.
Police arrived to find at least 3 vehicles involved in the accident along a stretch of freeway that had become notoriously known as one of the most unsafe areas in the state.
Police said that one female in her 60s was pronounced dead on the scene. Her identity is not yet known. Investigators have not released a cause but they did indicate that alcohol was not a factor and that speed was the likely cause.
Earlier in the day, one person was transported to the hospital following another major in that same general area. The Weber and Everhart exits along 358 East and West are nearly constantly congested and erratic drivers make for an even more dangerous stretch of road. Nearly a dozen accidents have been reported in the area in February alone.
