Fatal accident near Chinn Road claims two BISD students

Officers with the Beaumont Police Department report an accident between a passenger car and a dump truck claimed the lives of two Beaumont Independent School District students May 19.

According to Officer Carol Riley, the Beaumont Police Department responded to Eastex Freeway northbound service road at Chinn at about 4 p.m. in reference to a possible fatality accident. Traffic Investigators determined that a silver 4-door Honda Accord was traveling westbound on Chinn when the driver of the car ran the stop sign. The Honda was then struck by a dump truck traveling northbound on the service road. The 16-year old-driver, identified as Jordan Brown, and a 10-year old-passenger, Jordan's sister Jadyn, were deceased when first responders arrived. The intersection was closed for several hours so traffic officers could investigate the crash and clear the roadway, reported Riley.

Jordan was reportedly a junior at West Brook High School in Beaumont, and Jadyn was in fourth grade at Homer Elementary.
