Matagorda Beach Car Crash sends 4 people to hospital

A speeding driver crashes into civilians in Matagorda, sending three people life-flighted to a hospital in Houston on New Year’s Eve.

A Toyota pick-up was traveling at a high-speed when the driver failed to follow the posted warning signs to reduce speed.

The truck drove through a parking lot hitting two parked vehicles, which caused one vehicle to strike four pedestrians.

Three victims were life-flighted to Memorial-Herman in Houston with serious injuries, and one transported by Matagorda EMS to the Matagorda Regional Hospital with minor injuries.

The 23- year-old driver, Devonte Frank, was arrested and charged with reckless driving.

Frank was booked into the Matagorda County Jail.
