1-Year-Old Boy Killed in Tragic Incident after Cement Truck Falls from Overpass and Crushes Vehicle

A truck in Houston, Texas, fell over an overpass and landed on a vehicle, killing a 1-year-old boy inside it.

Authorities told KHOU, that a cement truck lost control, tipped over the rail of an overpass, and landed on top of the car the toddler was in, killing him in the tragic incident.

Lt. Simon Cheng, a deputy with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, told KHOU that when the concrete truck landed on the car, it was carrying a 54-year-old woman, a 24-year-old woman, and 22-month-old twins.

“The adults were able to exit the vehicle and rescue the girl — one of the twins — unfortunately, the boy twin was not able to be freed from the vehicle being crushed by the cement truck,” Cheng told the outlet.

According to KHOU, the survivors were rushed to a hospital and are now in stable condition.

According to Cheng, the cement truck’s driver sustained possible injuries but she refused transport to a hospital.

She “did not show any signs of impairment or intoxication,” Cheng said. “She is distraught about the incident, and she is cooperating with the investigation.”

According to KHOU, the Harris County District Attorney’s Office is investigating the incident and determining if charges will be filed.

As per Insideedition, in a GoFundMe campaign coordinated by the boy’s mother, Jennifer Resendiz, the child was identified as Nicholas Resendiz. According to the campaign, the family is “devastated by an unexpected and unimaginable tragedy.”

“Baby Nicolas Resendiz lost his life in a horrible, freak accident after a cement truck went over the rail and fell on top of the vehicle he was in,” the fundraiser said. 

“Although our family is still in shock, unable to process the loss of this sweet angel, we know that the days to come will be even more challenging as mom has to make arrangements for his funeral,” it added.
