Hardin County, TX — A two-car accident along US-69 last Saturday morning (April 27, 2013) left a man from Port Arthur dead at the scene. Texas DPS troopers identified 34-year old Christopher Lee Henry as the driver of a GMC pickup truck who was killed after being involved in an accident with a Dodge pickup truck.
The accident happened at about 12:15 a.m. on US-69 near Neushafer Road in Kountze. Henry was driving on US-69 just south of Neushafer when he crashed into the rear of Bryce Higgenbothem’s Dodge truck. The collision caused Henry’s truck to run off the highway and crash into a nearby tree, which left him fatally injured.
He passed away at the scene and Higgenbothem, who is from Hillster, was not injured. The cause of the accident is still being investigated.
