2 teens hurt as top of truck sheared off in Baytown crash

HARRIS COUNTY, Texas – Two older teens were airlifted after a serious crash in the Baytown area late Monday.

Deputies were called to Decker near Oakland after a pickup truck went under the trailer of an 18-wheeler, shearing off the top of the pickup. The 18-year-old driver and his 17-year-old female passenger were both taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Deputies believe the teen was driving too fast around a curve and didn’t see the 18-wheeler pulling out until it was too late.

Both teens had to be freed from the wreckage.

The 18-wheeler driver did not suffer injuries.
