Aug. 31 has been a deadly day for some Southeast Texas motorists and very frustrating for many others.

Motorists headed to their destinations were forced to find alternate routes Friday morning after a fatal crash at the base of the Purple Heart Memorial Bridge in Beaumont shut down Interstate 10 in both directions.

According to a Beaumont Police Department release, the driver of a GMC pickup truck heading eastbound in the westbound lane of I-10 collided head on with an 18-wheeler at 2:14 a.m.
