ROSENBERG, Texas – An 18-wheeler smashed into a building in Rosenberg Wednesday afternoon, and the driver didn’t survive.

It happened around 1 p.m. in the 3500 block of Highway 59, near FM 529.

Rosenberg police said the driver appeared to be headed down the 59 feeder when, for unknown reasons, he left the road, drove through a field and crashed into the side of the Mueller Inc. building.

The impact put a large dent in the side of the metal structure, but there were no reports of injuries from workers inside.

The truck driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

It was not clear if he was killed by the crash or if a fatal medical issue caused the accident.

The driver’s identity was not released.
