BEAUMONT - Beaumont Police have released the name of a man killed when a driver crashed head-on into his vehicle on the Eastex Freeway in Beaumont, forcing police to close a section of the highway for several hours.

Johnny Langton, 36, from Warren, died in the collision, according to Sgt. Rob Flores with the Beaumont Police Department. Langton was driving home in a 2001 Ford pickup from his job in Beaumont.

The woman driving the Jeep that struck Langton was injured, as was a man. Paramedics say their injuries aren't life threatening.

Witnesses say a driver of a Jeep traveling south on the Eastex Freeway lost control, crossed the median and struck Langton's vehicle head-on in the northbound lanes at about 3 p.m. Wednesday in front of the Kinsel auto dealership between Delaware and Lucas.

At least five vehicles were damaged in the collision and the northbound lanes were closed until about 7 p.m. Wednesday.

A number of vehicles damaged in the collision were work trucks carrying tools and other equipment. Some of the vehicles traveling on the road were struck by the flying debris.

The Traffic Division is investigating the cause of the accident.

That is indeed sad news.  I always liked Johnney and will pray for him and his family.

It is a shame that kind of things happens all the time.  There is little to nothing you can do when faced with a car heading straight at you.  It happens in a blink of an eye, all you can do is try to get side swiped. 

We were getting two or three serious accidents of people loosing control a year on route 78.  It was so bad that the state actually put in cable guard rails.

We will miss you JL!!


The 5.4 swap has been called a bad idea, and considered an underpowered considerable waste of time, since 2007.

Nice to see that most donít think that anymore.
