The truck then fell over the bridge and onto a Ford Expedition that was carrying a family of four.

The accident occurred Friday at the intersection of Frontage Road near Woodforest Boulevard southbound from East Belyway 8.

The family of four who were hit included: a 54-year-old grandmother, her 22-year-old daughter and the daughter’s 22-month-old twins.

Police said everyone was able to get out of the car except for the twin boy, who police were unable to pull out for hours.

The twin was pronounced dead at the scene.

Raymond Romo, a witness who works near the scene of the accident, also tried to pull the family out of the car.

“We saw it when we landed on the vehicle in the middle of the parking lot,” Romo told NBC2.

“Me and my friend Joe jumped into action right away,” he said.

Romo said he first tried to pull the 22-year-old daughter out of the car and then tried to save the twins.

He was able to get the twin girls out of the car but not the twin boys.

Referring to the girl, he said: “She was kind of pinned down and I reached back, [but] The front seat was a little hard to get,” he told ABC13.

“I started pulling on the car seat to get the baby out and we were actually able to get her out before she got trapped,” Romo said.

“Luckily I was able to get one of them out,” Romo told NBC2 while holding back tears. “But I couldn’t get the other one out.”

He recalled the moments before the accident:

“They saw it fall and the grandmother … she froze and kind of stopped,” Romo told the outlet.

“So when she stopped, it landed on the back of the vehicle.”

Romo told ABC, “I called my wife and told her to hug and kiss my kids, give them a hug and a kiss because you never know.”

“We tried to do what we can,” Joe Tijerina, another witness, told the outlet.

He said: “Everyone had to get together to see if there was any way we could move this around [concrete mixer].

“We had an 18 wheel truck trying to attach a chain to pull it off. We had a large 4×4 dual truck. I mean, he just didn’t move.”

The other three family members were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

The truck driver refused to be taken to the hospital.

Police say the driver showed no signs of being intoxicated and the accident may have been caused by slippery road conditions after it rained.

One of the witnesses said he saw the truck dodging another driver before the accident.

It’s unclear if any evidence at the crash site will lead to an indictment.

HAZMAT crews were also called to the scene to ensure no toxic chemicals were spilled into the storm drain system after the crash, NBC2 reported.
