On June 22 2008 an infant died in a car accident on the Galveston causeway. The accident occurred as the car the infant was riding in stalled on the bridge. A full size pickup truck rear ended the car resulting in the death of the infant as well as injuries sustained by the driver of the car a woman believed to be in her 50s and another passenger in the vehicle a five-year-old boy.
The woman and five-year-old boy were taken to the University of Texas Medical Branch for treatment of their injuries. The infant died at the scene.
The Galveston causeway does not have any road shoulders or emergency lanes leaving stranded motorists no place to go in the event of a break down.
